If you have a Mother, a Daughter, a Sister, an Aunt, a Woman in your life, the third installment of Touring Theatre's Kinfolk Series is not to be missed!
Todd Johnson's "the sweet by and by" realistically portrays the challenges that our aging society faces and captures the authentic voices of Southern women—women bickering, judging, loving, and growing old together. This play embraces the elderly and the people who care for them, from their nurse to their hairdresser. One can only dream of having these kinds of friendships in their golden years.
Praise for Todd Johnson's "the sweet by and by"
"This debut novel eloquently tells the story of North Carolina women, and it is quite simply one of the most beautifully written books you'll ever read. The story plays like music in the heart. Descriptions promise a laugh. Beautifully crafted dialogue brings a quick catch in the throat. Strength fills this book, while reinforcing the love and respect Southerners hold for their mothers, grandmothers, friends, and daughters." –Southern Living
"Johnson has perfect pitch. He is unsparing in his depiction of aging but leavens his topic with humor and tenderness...—his assured style keeps the story moving briskly and develops each character with depth and affection." –Our State Magazine
"The women of the sweet by and by have found a devoted muse in Todd Johnson." –Alice Walker
