"Summer and Smoke is set in Glorious Hill, Mississippi in 1916, and centers on reserved Alma Winemiller, the reverend’s unmarried daughter, who is in love with her childhood friend, the young Dionysian rebel Dr. John Buchanan, Jr.
They are opposites in this allegory of soul and body. “Isn’t it funny,” John tells Alma: “I’m more afraid of your soul than you’re afraid of my body.”
It is a character driven play that explores the need to resolve the light and dark sides of our humanity in order to achieve completeness." Mary-Ellen Perley, Director, Summer and Smoke
