Doug Jones Remembers ... The Okie Chronicles

It is a weekly short play competition with 5 pieces under 10 minutes each with the audience voting on which 3 will continue their story on the following Saturday. Ours was one of the new contenders, and apparently we brought the house down, winning a slot to continue. Our snippet is called "The Okie Chronicles" (a Grapes Of Wrath take-off) and I played 'Tubby', a dim, studdering hillbilly who can't read, but loves to beat on people with his bat.
