The description of the production on the Paradise Center for the Arts website is:

Thomas S. Buckham is a a young lawyer in the frontier town of Faribault, Minnesota when an unspeakably brutal war sets the young state ablaze. Tom volunteers to fight, bringing him face-to-face with Alexander Faribault-the city's idealistic founder and a man torn between serene memories and a changing world.  When the past crumbles around Alex and the compassionate Bishop Whipple, Tom will struggle to build a future for himself and his distant sweetheart, Anna Mallery, a woman with an unyielding spirit and a deep capacity for love.

Directors Temple and Ledman will be guests on today's AM Minnesota show beginning 9:30 a.m.  If you can't tune in at that time we will have the show uploaded to our website www.kdhlradio.com by tomorrow afternoon due to the Labor Day holiday.
