Gertie Nevels, a pioneer woman and the mother of five, is forced to uproot her children from the Kentucky hills to follow her husband to Detroit when he finds work during World War II. One setback follows another and shattering tragedy strikes the family. It’s all up to Gertie to find new strength, courage and determination to keep her family together and strong.

The Lady’s Not for Burning

By Christopher Frye
Directed by Amber Frangos
July 22 – August 1, 2021
Black Box at Flashback Theater Co. | 400 E. Mt. Vernon St. Somerset, Kentucky
Title Sponsor: Available

Thomas Mendip, a discharged soldier, weary of the world and eager to leave it, comes to a small town, announces he has committed murder and demands to be hanged. A philosophical humorist, Thomas is annoyed when the officials oppose his request, even believing he is not guilty of the crime he suggests. Shortly afterward, a young woman, Jennet, is brought before the Mayor for witchcraft, but for some strange reason she has no wish to be put to death! Thomas tries, in his own way, to prove to the official how absurd it would be to refuse to hang a man who wants to be hanged, and at the same time to kill a woman who is not only guiltless, but doesn’t want to die.

Digital Season

Our regular season programming has been moved to the summer 2021 as a result of COVID, but in place of our regular production schedule we are putting together online short plays, podcasts, archival footage, and digital workshops! Access our entire Digital Season by joining the Flashback Theater Patreon page: www.patreon.com/fbtheater for as little as $5/month!

Educational Workshops

Let’s Play! events are held throughout the season. Second Saturday workshops are held most months at 7 p.m. The Let’s Play! company also hosts several other projects and educational events, including a new play development workshop, throughout the year. Learn more by visiting our Education page.
