“Pinching Petunias”
On July 3, 1965, Frank Louvado, a sixty-four-year old from Brooklyn, steps from an abandoned trailer at the Peach Grove Trailer Court in Crozet, Virginia suffering from a hangover. As the morning unfolds, his sobering encounters with a precocious twelve-year-old, an overly friendly neighbor, and a hot-tempered mechanic lead him to a chance meeting with fifty-nine-year old Estelle Purvis. Will love bloom this late in the game for these two strangers or will Estelle’s stubborn streak keep her root bound in her ways? “Pinching Petunias,” a new comedy by Scottsville native Langden Mason, is a funny, heartwarming story of North meeting South in the foothills of the Blueridge Mountains.
