During a time when nasty gossip held as much weight as a guilty verdict, members of the church branded young Susannah Polk as a sinner. Written during the political persecutions of the McCarthy era, this two-act opera follows Polk as a slew of accusations are thrown on her. After being spotted bathing in a creek, she is falsely accused of seducing a town member and is shunned from her community. Set in a rural mountain town in Tennessee, Polk struggles to survive amidst the slander. Thu-Sun 7:30 p.m.
