Miss Lulu Bett by Zona Gale, is the winner of the 1921 Pulitzer Prize. Directed by Garner native, Playmakers veteran, and UNC-G grad NaTasha Thompson. This production will be WTF at its best featuring the historically inaccurate, role re-defining casting for which it is known. Lulu Bett, an unmarried woman living with her sister’s family, during a time when women had few choices, finds herself married to her ne’er do well brother-in-law. When her new husband vanishes, what will become of Lulu Bett and her family?​
