A small group of troubadours performed a few excerpts from a play called Scathe at the Williamson County Public Library today. The play is written by Dr. Deanne Collins (Ed.D). It is a historical drama based on a love-triangle in small town Spring Hill, Tennessee, in May 1863. It’s based on a true incident of Dr. Peters shooting and killing Gen Earl Van Dorn.
The drama troupe are all amateur actors. Collins is looking for corporate sponsors and support from residents in middle Tennessee. Her hope is to perform this drama (musical) annually, on the anniversary of the incident, starting in 2013. The play is presented in hopes of supporting the Tennessee Children’s Home in Spring Hill, TN.
