Mainstreet Theatre


     Daisy Wilson lives in a small Texas town, a widow since her philandering husband was shot by his mistress—an action with which she has some sympathy. It’s 1928, and romance reenters Daisy’s life when she finds Garland Steinholden in the front yard awaiting permission to call on her, despite her older sister’s chagrin.
     What follows is the inquisition, the courtship, the pecan pie, and the big, loud rocks crashing down on a small wooden table! Daisy must balance her anger and fear with her need for intimacy and her determination to have a second chance. While Daisy decides if Garland is a worthy cause —politely, but relentlessly, he pursues her—the food chain and the big wheel of life will all play a part!

     Canterbury performances are at 2:00 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 7:30 pm on Fridays, and Saturdays at 6:30 pm. Ticket prices are $16.00-$17.00, with discounts for seniors and students.
