A new musical adapted from Louise Shivers’ novel by Douglas Joiner and Mark Swanson.

When Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail was first published in 1983, it was named the best first novel of the year by USA Today. Set in the tobacco country of North Carolina in 1937, the story is told through the voice of Roxy Walston, the 20-year-old daughter of the town undertaker, wife of a struggling tobacco farmer, and mother of a two-year-old. When Jack Ruffin, a wanderer looking for work, is sent out to the farm to help Roxy’s husband, things are set in place that change Roxy’s life forever.

Theater AU is presented by the Augusta University Department of Communication.
