Maytag Virgin follows Alabama school teacher Lizzy Nash and her new neighbor Jack Key over the year following the tragic death of Lizzy's husband. The play explores the ideas of inertia and self-enlightenment and the bridge between the two.
Our time as humans on this planet if we want anything other than a life of complete solitude, always involves learning the hard work of love. We let go of our ideals to find some semblance of sanity. We convince ourselves that we can get by with less and that our own happiness is secondary to the task at hand. It is a great paradox. When we love fully, we lose a part of ourselves. - Audrey Cefaly
At a moment of seemingly endless divisions, Maytag Virgin revives its audience's hope in forgiveness and togetherness. The play offers laughter, sorrow and fearlessness through watching just two people navigate out of loss into new possibility. The Southern charm crafted into the play allows audiences to enjoy slowly the sweetness of budding passion. - Eric Gravez

Annie Nations, an indomitable Appalachian widow of 79, lives on her mountain farm with the acerbic ghost of her husband, Hector. Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort and by concern over her son, Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away.
Annie's battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching, and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. Played on Broadway by Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, this couple offers a staunchly affirmative tribute to country folk.
"The play quivers with laughter and stabs the heart." - Time
