The Advanced 2 Drama class at Starr's Mill will present Jim Leonard's “Anatomy of Gray” on October 11, 12 and 13 at 7 p.m. in Willie Duke Auditorium.

The award-winning author of “The Diviners,” “They Dance Real Slow In Jackson,” “Crow” and “The Weasel” describes his newest play as "A children's story for adults."

When June's father dies, she prays for a healer to come to the small town of Gray, so that no one will ever suffer again; the next thing she knows, there's a tornado, and a man in a balloon blows into town claiming to be a doctor. At first, the new doctor cures anything and everything, but soon the town's preacher takes ill with a mysterious plague, and then the plague begins to spread.

Set in Indiana during the late 1800s, “Anatomy of Gray” deals with death, loss, love and healing in a unique coming of age story.

Admission is $5. Those arriving after the show begins will be charged $8. On Saturday, Oct. 13, please use the entrance to Starr's Mill off of Ga. Highway 74 to avoid traffic leaving the parking lot from the air show.
