The play tells the story of Barbara Jean, owner of a diner in a small town and centers around the lives of the different customers that come to visit. Throughout the play, we get a window into the hearts of everyday people, and the typical gossip that surrounds ordinary life in a small southern town. The play features a wealth of different music, ranging from folk to country to contemporary.
