Frank Blocker’s One-Man Show
“Flawlessly executed… Blocker is a standout!” —NY Times

There are 5,218 people living in the small town of Aberdeen, Mississippi. This is the story of 17 of them, all played by Frank Blocker, in this smash hit one-man show. Frank takes you deep into the south where you meet Viola Haygood, a 23-year-old­ virgin who falls in love easily, the newcomer bar owner Odessa (Big Otis) Cole; the dimwitted Jimmy Townsend, who loves Viola and even gave her the television set he won at a chili cook-off; and Mrs. Wong, the owner of what must be Aberdeen’s only Chinese restaurant.
