Woman Hollering Creek
by Rita Anderson
WOMAN HOLLERING CREEK is set in the fictional town of Dark Cloud, Texas, at the DRESSY BBQ FISH TACOS, a restaurant, dress, and bait-and-tackle shop that also offers fishing and hunting tours, as well as massages. DRESSY BBQ FISH TACOS is doing a booming business since the ghost town hopes to get into the Book of World Records for their Largest Ball of Dental Floss. The shop is like an old-fashioned General Store on steroids. It prides itself in finding you whatever you need, and they dabble in just about everything. But, when a “stranger” comes to town and promises to make them all rich, we learn that no one is who they claim to be in Dark Cloud and everyone has a secret. WOMAN HOLLERING CREEK, a serio-comedy with a farcical flair, takes its name from the creek that runs through San Antonio, and the script was inspired by the legend of La Llorona, the “weeping woman.”

Take a seat at the unique and eccentric Dressy BBQ Fish Tacos and watch this brilliant and playful storyline unfold.
With a cast you can’t help but be intrigued by- and a series of events that are entertaining and gripping- you will want to keep reading, constantly wondering what will happen next!
This brilliant little play encompasses friendship and the many ways it looks, as it gives us a few of life’s noteworthy reminders:
You should never judge a book by its cover.
Our lives are all interwoven, often far deeper than we know… and the impact we have on others is significant.
And lastly, sometimes the flaws in our character can actually serve as our greatest attributes.
I will read this play again and again. Bravo!
This play is not only a funny play about a mythical town in Texas, but it has real meaning too. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and have actually seen it performed and it is a wonderful play. Enjoyable everytime.
