A classic Southern love story. When the unflappable Jack Key moves in next door to the endearingly neurotic Lizzy Nash, sparks fly. Over time, neighborly nagging softens and a deeper connection emerges between the two high school teachers. As the leaves turn yellow and the months march on, kept secrets shake loose and the pair find themselves facing the same question: how do you know when you’re ready to live, and love, again?
Maytag Virgin by Audrey Cefaly will play beginning June 29, 2022 in FST's Keating Theatre.
Run Time: 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission
