Janey Makes A Play is a captivating documentary feature, which follows ninety-year-old Janey as she rallies her small town to create a community theatre production amidst the background of a local economy devastated by the recent recession. Transported into rural America, we witness the challenges of pulling off a quality production with an eccentric cast of characters. As the play unfolds, the town of Rio Vista becomes an important character itself, as we see the fragility of a small town’s existence when it relies on the fading industry of farming and local commerce.
