Other times, it might just - deflate. Come sit a spell and you decide about the feel of this here house.Director: Peter Allen StoneStage Manager: John Thomas PriarCast: Harper: Katy Rucker (Freshman)Isaiah: Carson Latham (Sophomore)Sawyer: Maeada King (Junior)Mother: Meredith Crutcher (local Lexington actor)FALSE FACE, by Silas HouseJacob is a young man who has been traumatized by events both explosive and quiet. In FALSE FACE, he tells us his story--at least what he wants us to know of it--by exploring the nature of fear and the lack of nuanced thought in contemporary society.
