"First Baptist of Ivy Gap"

"A poignant comedy about the secrets and dreams of six women of the Ivy Gap First Baptist Church during WWII and the Vietnam era."
During WWII, a group of women gather at church to roll bandages and plan the church's 75th anniversary. Twenty-five years later, the "First Baptist Six" reunite. With humor and pathos, these six very different women find comfort, forgiveness and redemption in one another.

What people say:

"A wonderful new play from the pen of Ron Osborne...a warm and respectable story about six strong and resourceful characters ... very, very funny, all the more because it relies on deep human emotions to bring forth the humor ...will be compared to Steel Magnolias, but forget steel; these mountain magnolias are pure gold ... humor, drama, warmth and six of the most wonderful characters you'll see — tasty comfort for the playgoer's soul." — Bristol Herald-Courier

"First Baptist of Ivy Gap has drama, tragedy, love, loss and redemption with plenty of comedy too." —

"A beautiful Southern comedy that will keep you in stitches beginning to end." — Elizabethton Star
