Country music legend Sonny Burl walks into just another truck stop in the middle of nowhere, USA. He’s returning to his hometown to perform a concert at the Indiana county fair, and to try to connect with the wife he never divorced, the brother he abandoned, and the grown daughter he never got to know. His bittersweet homecoming fuels an unforgettable collision of the strong and the wise, and is a reminder of how fame gets in the way of life, love and ultimately death.


A 99-seat “Crazy Heart,” this tender 80-minute dramedy has the makings of a mellow hit for Rogue Machine Theatre.
