In the weeks following the devastation of Hurricane Andrew, Ruth McMillan attempts to keep her stone crabbing business afloat with plans for her daughter Maybelline to take over the family business. When May, an aspiring artist, meets a charismatic boy with dreams of traveling West, and Ruth is reunited with a High School friend intent on buying her out…tensions rise like the tide. Will Ruth drift with the tide of the times or will she keep fighting the current to keep intact everything she holds dear to her?

"A charming script by Montana Cypress, clean and lean direction by Monica Martin and a powerhouse performance by Marjorie Knight. I loved the story. I saw the Encore in which the writer (Montana Cypress) stepped in to play Cody and I really enjoyed the chemistry between him and Kelly Crossley as Maybelline. Marjorie Knight’s performance shines especially bright though. Her portrayal of Ruth captured me completely. The sound and lighting design was also stellar. I’m not sure how much of that was from Director Monica Martin or Stage Manager Hannah McDonald (or perhaps a combined effort), but it was fantastic."

"But with great performances by Marjorie Knight, Omar Salazar, and Kelly Crossley, This Way Yonder is the direction to head for a nice mix of drama and comedy."
