Hollywood meets the Mississippi Gulf coast. In a “Survivor-like” environment in Governor Robert Tubbman’s beach house on a private island seven miles off the Mississippi Gulf coast, a producer-director, screenwriter, publicist (who happens to be the producer-director’s wife and screenwriter’s former lover), and egomaniacal star actor form alliances to plot against each other, to the bewilderment of the local sheriff. Nothing is as it seems in this comedy-mystery, co-written by As the World Turns soap-opera star and Ole Miss graduate Anthony Herrera, who was born in Wiggins, Mississippi.

- The Ponder Heart
- Shows: Nov. 7-9 & 14-16, 2014. The mild Uncle Daniel Ponder is one of the truly original characters of the modern American drama. Uncle Daniel is the most amiable man on earth, and no one can resist taking him and his habits to his heart. He buys everybody ice cream cones, invites them all to the big murder trial, and even welcomes the out-of-town prosecutor on arrival. He is so guileless that he does not realize until the climax of the trial that he is accused of the murder of the young, child-like girl whom he loved dearly and took as his bride for a three-month trial marriage.
