Divorce is tricky to navigate in any corner of the world, but (let's face it) divorce in the South is something that even the bravest, most foolhardy person quails before facing. There are all kinds of things to contend with--guns, hard liquor, prying neighbors--but a real Southerner can handle it. Of course if divorce doesn't work out, a Southern woman knows she can always approach it Scarlett O'Hara--style: head back to Tara, get yourself together and get Rhett Butler back by hook or by crook. At least, that's the approach Eleanor Bander takes in the play Divorce Southern Style when, after 15 years of divorce, she finds herself strapped for cash and wanting her husband back. One "forced" engagement for her daughter later, and the ex-husband, complete with current flame, is back in her orbit. We all know what happens from here. It's simply a question of what would Scarlett do? The Company of Rowlett Players presents Divorce Southern Style 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Plaza Theater, 521 State St. in Garland.
