Book of Days

About Book Of Days

Reminiscent of Thorton Wilder’s Our Town, Book of Days is about a small southwestern Missouri town confronted by a violent death and is forced to reconsider the world and values they thought they knew inside and out. Dublin, Missouri is dominated by three institutions: a cheese plant, a fundamentalist church, and a community theater. The Cheese factory is owned by Walt, who wants to keep the status quo and reap the profits from producing mediocre cheese for Kraft Foods. The plant manager, Len, has bigger plans. He wants to transform the part of the output into fine cheeses for a more refined clientele.
