Faith County and An Evening of Culture is essentially two related shows in one. Faith County centers on fierce competition in the arts and crafts category at the county fair. Contestants include Mildred's ceramic recreation of The Last Supper, Ruthann's cake made with rum, trendy hair styling from Naomi, and creative toilet seat covers from Violet. Love is also set to bloom during the fair.
Faith County II: An Evening of Culture finds the down home Mineola County gang putting on its community theatre version of Romeo and Juliet. The show will go on, no matter what it takes, despite no one in the cast knowing their lines, an unfinished set, and a dog barking nearby.
Ron Johnson directed Faith County and An Evening of Culture.
The cast includes Cindy Smith as Mildred, Adrielle Perkins as Faye McFaye, Emily Miller as Ruthann Barns, Pamela Slack as Naomi, Kevin Bowling as Delbert, Luke Aaron as Luther Carson, Sara Renauer as Violet, Janet Popp as Gladys, and Andrew McGill as Bubba Bedford.
