Grace and Glorie

By Tom Zigler

Grace and Glorie returns to One Thirty Productions by popular demand. Grace and Glorie is a heartwarming story of two women from very different worlds. Grace, a cantankerous woman of sixty years plus plans to live out her life high in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the little cabin she calls home. The old stove smokes, there is no phone and there are chickens on the front porch. When Grace breaks her hip, the local hospice sends Gloria a social worker and volunteer to “help” Grace. There are laughs and a few tears as these women come to know each other and become good friends.
