“The Rock Farm,” a play about heritage, love, family, and the magnetic attraction of home, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5 in Dryden Theatre at Central Lakes College in Brainerd. The play was written by award-winning Brainerd poet and CLC English instructor Donna Salli, who is from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, born to parents of full Finnish descent still living in Wakefield. Her play also will be staged Saturday, Aug. 7 at the historic Ironwood Theatre in Ironwood, Mich. “The Rock Farm” is a play about the Finnish-American culture of the Upper Peninsula. The story focuses on a family of women anxiously awaiting the safe arrival of other family members during a horrific snowstorm. Director Patrick Spradlin has assembled a local cast that includes Meredith Bjorkquist of Crosslake, who plays Raija; Dwana Paplow of Brainerd as Ann; Lydia Hawley of Emily portraying Sarah; Audra Albrecht of Brainerd as Carolyn; and Meagan Kedrowski, CLC alum now performing with Moorhead’s Strawhat Players, who will perform the role of Helmi.
