Brackley Obama
Jules Corriere - Franklin County, Georgia

We had a read through of our play last week, after table work. We all had a big laugh at a mis-speak of one of the lines in our scene “One Hundred Years of Nursing”. It’s a scene based on stories I gathered from the Ty Cobb Nursing Home, from two ladies who are 103 and 98 years old, both of them former nurses. The line in the script reads “Lord, Lord, I’ve gone from Jim Crow to Barack Obama.” Instead, the actor read “Lord, Lord, I’ve gone from Jim Crow to Brackley Obama”. We all had a good laugh because our lighting designer’s name is Brackley. So, we let him know how fondly people think of him here in North Georgia.
