Local playwright heads up P.L.O.T.T. performers

From the age of 12 Debbie Lawhorn, of Milford, has been writing. She has had poems published in two books in the Library of Congress and has written numerous short stories and has several unfinished novels. In 2007 she attended an on-stage play performance featuring her daughter as an actress and said she was hooked.

“I knew then that I wanted to write plays,” Lawhorn said. “The ideas for plots just come to me, I can visualize the characters and even their names just pop into my head. I wake up in the middle of the night and have to write down the ideas that come to me.”

Lawhorn is the playwright and driving force behind the Performing Live on The Town Performers. The group has met with much success since their inception in 2008. Their last dinner theater performance “Driving Me Crazy” sold out each night.
