Each performance of Swamp Gravy is an original, crowd-pleasing blend of comedy, drama, and music, featuring a cast of more than 100 volunteers who transform Southern life into unforgettable theater. These volunteers, who are the backbone of all of the efforts of the Arts Council, bring to life the stories that have helped shape our community. All of Swamp Gravy's plays are based on real-life stories taken from taped interviews and adapted for the stage by a professional playwright. Each year, a new script and original music are written and re-enacted by an local cast, who give professional-quality performances in an effort to celebrate a culture that is uniquely rural South Georgia. Swamp Gravy has been gaining national attention since its inception. As a testament to that authenticity, the state's general assembly designated Swamp Gravy "Georgia's Official Folk Life Play" thanks to the efforts of then-Rep. Cathy Cox.
