A woman who was scorned and run out of her home town returns decades later to wreak a unique sort of vengeance in Samm-Art Williams’ play “Woman from the Town.”
The central character, Lila, has transformed herself from a poor, outcast, unwed mother into a powerful real estate mogul. As her home town undergoes an economic downturn, Lila is there to buy up the foreclosed homes of the people who treated her so abysmally.
But Lila’s plan, like any act of vengeance, does not work out quite the way she planned.
