Gulf View Drive at B Street

“Gulf View Drive” winds up the Nibroc Trilogy by Arlene Hutton, a major project this season at Sacramento’s B Street Theatre. At the center of all three plays are Raleigh (Jason Kuykendall) and May (Dana Brooke), a Kentucky couple who meet and marry in “Last Train to Nibroc,” just before World War II. As the war ends they struggle with his disability and her teaching career in “See Rock City.” And in the current offering, the finale, they’ve moved to Florida, where they must cope with their mothers and Raleigh’s pregnant sister, Treva, who asks Raleigh to take temporary custody of her baby to be. The couple also struggles with the stresses of their careers and the deeply embedded prejudices of the South during the fifties.
