Edward Morgan has adapted William Faulkner's popular novella, "Old Man," for the stage. A tall convict must rescue a pregnant woman from the 1927 Mississippi River flood. Those unfamiliar with the original may find the script -- at times lumpy and overloaded with dialogue, at times moving -- enjoyable. Fans of the original will miss Faulkner's epic ironies (the convict would rather spend his life in the South's most penal institution than be around women) in this domesticated version, where they almost fall in love. Performances by Richard Baird, as the convict, Sara Fettter as the woman, and cameos by Geno Carr are worth seeing, however. Worth a try.
