Stokes, a Brewton-Parker senior from Ludowici, wrote the play as part of his playwriting class and is directing his work as an independent study project.


The play is set in the mobster era of the 1930s in the fictional metropolitan area of Babbleton. A stranger comes to town and the townspeople vividly notice that he is different.


While the townspeople try to find out who he is, conflicts between police and mobsters persist. As the townspeople try to find out more about the stranger, they in turn find out more about themselves through their own actions and discover the value of their actions is more so than their words.
