Familiar Spirits - by Cody Underwood

     'Familiar Spirits' is writer Cody Underwood's portrayal of the Southeast Texas' legend of Sarah Jane.  In this version of the ageless ghost story Underwood conjures the ties that bind the nineteenth century Sarah Jane and wife of a Confederate soldier, to that of Catherine an expectant mother who a hundred years later is in her own war torn time and waiting the return of her husband and soldier Michael.

     'Familiar Spirits' was commissioned by and debuted to much success at the Beau Reve House on ‘Sarah Jane’ road in Port Neches, TX.  It has been reprised twice more at the Beau Reve House and at the main stage of Port Arthur Little Theatre.
