PINE BLUFF, Ark. – Love, isolation, war and prayer are all of the essential elements that make up the unraveling of the play, Hope’s Return by Nikki Skies.
This upcoming production of the 2015-2016 John-McLinn Ross Player’s pivotal season is sure to illuminate societal issues. In this enticing play, Hope, a soldier, was sent to war to serve her country. Upon her return home to Georgia to live a normal life, reality indicates that it’s much easier said than done. She struggles with the desire to pursue dreams of becoming a teacher while her religious family wants her back in church and traumatic flashback experiences from the war want her back in Iraq.
