Pamela Parker’s play Second Samuel was a popular hit last season with MLT audiences. The themes of love and acceptance continue in its prequel, A Higher Place in Heaven. From her front porch, the plantation owning widow Mrs. Madison and Miss Simpson, her close companion who was born into slavery on the plantation, tell how their sons, Frisky and Ulysses, become best friends in pre-Depression era rural Georgia. And, of course, there are even more delightful surprises in this gem of a play!
