Come Back To The Five And Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean

a play by Ed Graczyk

(Past Show – May 2022)

1955 – on a film set in the West Texas desert, James Dean finishes work on his final film.

1975 – 20 years after their idol’s death, the Disciples of James Dean meet at a ramshackle Five and Dime store.

Between hugs and bickering, old songs, a few beers and the sultry Texan heat, the women talk, dream, and reconnect. As they do, old memories bubble to the surface.

But with the arrival of a glamorous-but-familiar stranger, long-hidden secrets are revealed and old friendships put to the test….

A warm and touching portrait of bonds that shift and change, but somehow endure.

Directed by Ben Maytham and Helen Clarke.
