Adapted from the best-selling novel by Angela Correll and co-written with Robby Henson. Annie comes back to her grandmother’s home farm and rekindles a relationship with her boyfriend Jake. However when she finds letters written during World War II, they reveal a family mystery that can only be solved by flying to Italy. Nosy neighbors, unexpected houseguests, and mysterious relatives all threaten to upend this family as they search for the long-buried truth.
Production: A Kentucky Voices World Premiere Production commissioned by Pioneer Playhouse for their 2017 season.
“Guarded” is a beautifully executed play that’s far more complicated to pull off than it appears to the audience. Holly Hepp-Galván came up with a masterful adaptation of Correll’s novel for the stage. – Ben Kleppinger, The Advocate-Messenger
