Area theatergoers should be able to easily relate to Scene One's upcoming production of "Rural Delivery." The play is set in Mid-Missouri and features lots of local color in the fictional drama/comedy.
It's also written and directed by Keith Enloe, a seasoned Jefferson City theater performer. It's Enloe's first attempt at writing a full-length play, and he's taken his time - about five years - to get it just right.
The fictional story is based around the Centertown Post Office, where Enloe's grandmother worked as a postmaster for close to 40 years. In the story, Laura (Shellie Howser) is the postmaster and a widowed mother who is struggling to raise her two children. When one of the children is threatened, Richard (Dan Zaiger), a post office employee who is a loner and misunderstood, steps up to save the day.
"It's meant to leave them with a good feeling, but there's a surprise twist at the end," Enloe said.
