About Land of Spirit

Land of Spirit is a professionally produced folk life play based on stories of the people of Franklin County Georgia. The title refers to the abiding spirit of the people of Franklin County, Georgia and its surrounding areas. The play is built from oral histories of the locals “remembering” the good and bad times throughout our history. It blends folk tales, jokes as well as well known scandals and deep secrets.

Each play season which occurs every June, the Land of Spirit production features a different theme or story. Locals put aside their normal activities to become actors and actresses to create a performance that provides compelling, authoritative and confident theatre.

Land of Spirit is presented by the City of Lavonia, for the purpose of providing cultural and art activities to the citizens of Franklin County and surrounding areas. It is supported, in part through contributions and voluteers from A Greater Lavonia Community, Inc. AGLC is a 501C3 non-profit organization.

The Land of Spirit Folk Life plays have been presented since 2008 with the production of “The Last Hard Times” and has continued through 2018 with the production of “Believe in Miracles”
