Walking Across Egypt begins when 78 year old Mattie Rigsbee discovers a stray dog on her back porch, she calls the dogcatcher. Little does she know that Lamar Benfield will open her eyes to a world she never knew existed; a world that includes car theft, prison breaks and a juvenile delinquent named Wesley, who is as desperate for family as she is. Armed with only her mouthwatering cornbread and a deep abiding faith in the Almighty, Mattie is determined to woo Wesley to the side of God and good manners.
The cast of Walking Across Egypt includes Alesa Bryant, Steve Elderbrock, Carole Lynne McKinney, Doug Shaw, McKenzie Pauley, Caleb Grindstaff, Rob Storrs, and Randal Garland. The production is being directed by Steven Grindstaff.
