The play is written by Land Stewardship Project's Doug Nopar, and directed by Fillmore County theater artist Eva Barr. A retiring couple wrestles with the future of their farm, and the one-act play explores the moral dilemma faced by Nettie and Gerald, longtime conservation farmers. Should they let their farm go for top dollar to the largest farmer in the county? Or should they help out a young farm couple, interested in starting a dairy.

The play was created out of numerous interviews and stories of both beginning and retiring farmers in recent years. The play will focus on the pending decision of a retiring farm couple, a decision that will determine the legacy of their farm. The play and the discussion that follows with the audience will raise the question of "Who will farm the land in the next generation?"

For more information on the play or to make reservations, contact the Land Stewardship Project office in Montevideo at 320-269-2105 or email: stettler@landstewardshipproject.org. Tickets are $5.
