In a small-town dime store in West Texas, the “Disciples of James Dean” gather for their twentieth reunion. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies’ congenial reminiscences mingle with flashbacks to their youth; then the arrival of a stunning-but-familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments.

The cast features Kristin Pidcock (Director of Education at Limelight Theatre), Beth Lambert (Executive Director of Limelight Theatre), Shelli Long, Jennifer Latka, Jennifer Farrow, Dianne NeighmondWill Gooden, Heather Eggleston and Shannon Acevedo.
