Split in Three to Play Lawrenceville's Aurora Theatre



Filled with humor and heart, Split in Three is set to take the stage at Aurora Theatre May 4-28.

Change can be exhilarating and excruciating at the same time.  Written by Atlanta’s own Daryl Lisa Fazio, this highly-anticipated comic drama looks at a quintet of people in the Mississippi Delta struggling with personal change during a time of great historic change:  the Civil Rights movement in the late 60s. 
 “This play is very funny, extremely relevant, thought-provoking, suspenseful, crisply written, and full of heart,” says Justin Anderson, Aurora Theatre’s Associate Artistic Director.    
Directed by Anderson, Split in Three spans the later part of 1969, dovetailing into the early days of 1970, and is set in the Mississippi Delta when integration finally makes its way to the last segregated county in the country.  Sisters Nola and Nell have opposite views on the subject.  Nell believes that change is a bad thing and that they must do everything in their power to protect the current state of life.  Nola, on the other hand, believes a person should think for themselves.  Under the national spotlight, this small Mississippi town is a pressure cooker of emotion as historical, life-changing events unfold.  Nola and Nell are in for a dramatic life-change themselves when their long lost, bi-racial half-sister shows up at the front door.        
Atlanta favorite and Aurora veteran Courtney Patterson stars as Nola Parsons, joined by Rhyn McLemore Saver as Nell Parsons Cobb.  Rounding out the cast are Suzi Bass Award-winner Travis Smith in the role of Tucker Tacket, Falashay Pearson as Penny Tompkins, and Elijah Marcano as Clifford Barnhill.
Split in Three will play at Aurora Theatre May 4–28.  A discount matinee will be offered on Wednesday, May 24 at 10 a.m. with tickets starting at $16.  Regular tickets range from $20-$55 and may be purchased online at tickets.auroratheatrecom or by calling the Box Office at 678-226-6222.  For more information on this production or other programming, please visit auroratheatre.com.
Regular show times are as follows:
·         Tuesday–Saturday:  8 p.m.
·         Saturday and Sunday:  2:30 p.m.

Escape to the sultry tropics at winter’s favorite exhibition
Step into a warm, fragrant tropical oasis of flowers February 11 – April 9 during Orchid Daze, the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s annual orchid extravaganza.
Staged among thousands of beautiful orchids in the Fuqua Orchid Center – one of the country’s largest collections of species orchids – the popular exhibition features three paradisiacal settings that allow visitors to leave behind their urban surroundings.
In the Fuqua Conservatory lobby, guests stroll under a canopy of stately Caribbean palms while tropical orchids in mango, pineapple and coral colors burst like sparklers overhead. Below is a diverse carpet of exquisite slipper orchids of varying sizes.
Beneath its 22-foot ceiling, the Orchid Atrium features a soaring vertical tapestry woven with fragrant orchids. Visitors see up close and at eye level the astonishing variety of intricate patterns and colors that bewitch orchid pollinators.  Pansy Orchids with big bold flowers of vibrant magenta, gold and pink contrast with delicate miniature Dancing Lady Orchids.  A surrounding backdrop of Moth Orchids lends the feeling of complete immersion in an orchid paradise.
Finally, the Orchid Display House welcomes guests to an idyllic escape. Colorful hammocks billowing with Cattleya Orchids are laced between russet-colored Manzanita trees, creating the ultimate warm haven on a chilly day.
In addition, Orchid Daze includes Orchid Market Weekends Feb. 18 - 19, March 18 – 19 and  April 8 – 9, when visitors may shop for a wide variety of orchids and potting supplies as well as arts and crafts by local artisans. Also, on Saturdays of those weekends, they may take advantage of  Orchid Care Clinics for advice on caring for their plants.
