Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean

By Ed Graczyk

Directed by Courtney Woolard

September 11th - October 4th, 2009

An all-female fan club called the Disciples of James Dean meets at a Woolworths five-and-dime branch in McCarthy, Texas. According to a 2014 interview with playwright Ed Graczyk the setting of the play is actually a H. L. Kressmont & Co. Five and Dime. The group reunites in 1975 to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Dean’s death. (In 1955, the actor was filming Giant in Marfa, not far from where the store stands.)
