Macon, Georgia’s own most famous (or infamous) murderess truly comes to life in this newly revised and updated play, which has been brought back to the MLT stage once again by the continuing demands of our audience. You may think you already know everything about Anjette Lyles, but The Shadow Behind the Flame: the Anjette Lyles Story addresses much more than just the who, what, when, and where of the local murder case. This dramatization takes you back to Anjette’s childhood, gets inside her head, and listens in on those who observed her behavior. Local writer and director Denver Pickard presents a terrifying yet charismatic and gracious lead character whose charm will make you smile even while chilling your heart, and a story line that contains equal amounts of  down home Southern humor and bone-tingling horror. This show is a must-see for everyone, both those who have seen it and can’t wait to see it again as well as those who have missed it during its previous runs and have been begging us to bring it back.
