Carnelle Scott, a hopeful victor in this year’s "Miss Firecracker Contest" competition, is as feverish as the humid temperatures outside as she readies herself for what she anticipates will be a spectacular event of personal reinvention. This boisterous and bold dark comedy, a true Beth Henley play, explores human nature through the slightly larger-than-life, and finds earnest humor and satire in many of the same places. Both charming and irreverent, The Miss Firecracker Contest is a wistful take on Southern beauty culture and the real-life facades it so eloquently symbolizes.
