Rob and Maddie, longtime Michiganders and one of the many casualties of economic downsizing, find themselves experiencing a severe case of culture shock after they move to a small town in Georgia for a new job. When their friendly next-door neighbor invites Rob to join him in a Civil War reenactment, a simple and comical misunderstanding ignites a hilarious private civil war between the neighbors that threatens to demolish the couple’s new life before it even begins. Michigan playwright Joseph Zettelmaier’s heartwarming tale is a story of survival, acceptance and embracing a new homeland.
