Facing problems ranging from long, cold winters, to domestic violence, to racial conflict, the women of Flyin' West include Miss Leah, the old woman whose memories of slavery and its aftermath comprise a living oral history; Sophie Washington, who is determined to protect her land and those she loves; Fannie Mae Dove, the gentle sister, trying to civilize the frontier with fine china and roses. This is a remarkable glimpse into American history told through the lives of powerful characters and a moving story told with pathos and humor. It serves as a reminder of the diversity of Western pioneers. Presented by Davidson Community Players. For more information, visit www.davidsoncommunityplayers.org.
