The Geller Girls
Playing out like a Shakespeare comedy and a classic 19th-century novel of marriage, ‘The Geller Girls’ totters on the edge of joy and devastation. … I’m thrilled to say that I love pretty much everything about ‘The Geller Girls.’ It’s a wonderfully textured comedy about a world on the cusp of change, and a family that must find a new way to live and to love..."
—Wendell Brock for the Atlanta Journal/Constitution
The lives of the Geller sisters --17 year-old Louisa and 23 year-old Rosalee -- are forever changed when the Cotton Exposition of 1895 arrives in the heat of Atlanta for 100 days -- bringing with it cannibals and Hoochie Coochie Girls, Suffragette and Presidents. After a window on the world has been thrown open, can the simple lives that Louisa and Rosalee have always imagined for themselves be enough? And if not, can they escape convention and unyielding family expectations to pursue a life of their own?
