DOWAGIAC — A new play is taking the stage in Dowagiac.

The Beckwith provided the following description of the play: “In a small cabin on the bank of Chesapeake Bay, Gunner has hatched an unorthodox plan to secure his family’s future but meets resistance from his wife and son, who have plans of their own. As winter approaches, the three must quickly find common ground and come to an understanding before the tide goes out. The Outgoing Tide is a darkly humorous and powerfully emotional play.”
