A Heart Divided

A Heart Divided Cast

Gripping Drama Featuring Traditional American Songs

Slated for November 8, 9 and 10th in the Little Theater

at 7:00 P.M.

For the 150th commemoration of The Civil War, BCC Theater presents A Heart Divided, a play that sheds light on the controversy that continues in 2012 to divide our nation, north and south. BCC theater students are pictured in rehearsal for this powerful story. The play depicts a family that moves from a New York City suburb to Redford, Tennessee, where they encounter a culture that shocks them – one that proudly flies a Confederate flag. The family’s teenaged daughter Kate aspires to be a playwright and falls in love with the handsome scion of the town, Jackson Redford III, whose great grandfather died a Civil War hero. Kate is torn between her own upbringing and that of the boy with whom she has fallen in love and the whole family is gripped by a conflict that has tragic results.

BCC theater students Rebecca Harding and Bobby Cebula play the roles of Kate and Jackson. Rachel Hardy, Jaimie Girnis, Dylan Gardner, Cassidy Wright, Joy Thornton, Stephanie Reyes and Jonathan Collins round out the cast. BCC music student Shawn White will accompany the production. A Heart Divided was written by the husband and wife team of Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfeld. The performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 8, 9 and 10 at 7:00 PM in the Little Theater.
