The Wisteria Bush is set in a fictitious small town in Alabama. Coleridge is the kind of town where everybody knows everybody else and most of its citizens have lived there all their lives. They venture out of their own community to go to neighboring towns, the way people in the city, mainly would go to the suburbs for commodities they need, but also to do things there, they might not do in their own environs. It's a month before the town's annual Homecoming and the committee to select an ex graduate of the high school for the honor of Homecoming Queen is getting together to make their choice. It's a prestigious honor, as the Queen will be feted with a banquet in the local high school gymnasium and reign over the parade. It's April and very hot for that time of year. This is a play about women's friendships and while a southern accent is in order for this work, these people are country people and that is the way the dialogue is written. This is rural America.
