My husband and I debuted a new Green-Bay-Packer-themed screenplay at the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts. About 40 people came to see a staged reading we put together with some of our favorite Twin Cities performers.
It’s the story of Dick, Big V, and their kids Joanie and Little Dick, as they struggle to keep their hometown, locally-owned grocery in business after a large corporate grocery moves in. Can the ghost of Vince Lombardi save them? Can they save themselves?
If you like Packer football, beer and brats, and family business underdogs trying to save their livelihood in the Fox River Valley of Wisconsin, this one’s for you.
At the reading, I met two middle-aged siblings whose parents actually owned a grocery store Up North that nearly went under until they focused on their homemade meats.
