by Crescent Dragonwagon, with songs by Bill Haymes
Living, love, loss, and cornbread. Bestselling author and James Beard Award-winner Crescent Dragonwagon mixes all four in her brand-new one-woman show, featuring live music by her old friend Bill Haymes. Melding original stories, music, and history, ingredient by ingredient, in three short acts, Dragonwagon travels with audiences on a provocative, thoughtful, redemptive, funny, happy-sad journey about reinvention, myth, friendship, corn, grief, and breaking cornbread with those you love.

About the Playwright:
Crescent Dragonwagon, who lived in Eureka Springs, Arkansas for 32 years before moving to Vermont, is a New York native. Primarily known for her children’s books (like the Coretta Scott King Award-winner, Half a Moon and One Whole Star), novels (like the New York Times Notable, The Year It Rained) and cookbook-memoirs (like the James Beard Award-winning Passionate Vegetarian). With her late husband, Ned Shank, and her creative collaborator, Bill Haymes, she co-owned Dairy Hollow House, a country inn in Eureka Springs. There, she prepared thousands of skillets of the cornbread at the heart of this show. Until Just Moistened is Dragonwagon's first play—but a lifetime in the making.
