First Baptist of Ivy Gap

The women of Ivy Gap who’ve gathered in the church meeting room at First Baptist have as much to learn about themselves as they do each other. Barksdale Theatre at Hanover Tavern’s current production of “First Baptist of Ivy Gap” introduces us to Luby, Olene, Mae Ellen, Edith, Sammy and Vera, who have come together to help the war effort and discuss plans for the church’s 75th anniversary.
