On January 19, a new play by Blue Ridge High School alumnus Andrea Daniels will premiere at the Barley Sheaf Players in Lionville, PA. Andrea wrote the play, entitled “The Devil You Know,” for the express purpose of raising both awareness for the issue of domestic violence and funds to aid Chester County’s Domestic Violence Center.
The play examines the ideas of forgiveness and sacrifice as necessary means of survival. When Annabel Harper returns to the hometown where she grew up, ten years after running away, she finds herself unable to confront the mother who abused her and the sisters she left behind. But a chance meeting with a charming man, who keeps his own violent past hidden, sets her on a dangerous path towards the same kind of pain she struggled to escape a decade ago.
Andrea graduated from Blue Ridge in 1994 and received her BA in Theatre from West Chester University in 1998. She is currently employed as an administrative assistant at WCU, where she is pursuing a second degree in English Literature with a minor in Creative Writing. She serves on the executive board for the West Chester Summer Performing Arts Project and has been a member of the Barley Sheaf Players since 1999.
The Devil You Know will be Andrea’s third benefit production and her second original piece. Last year she raised nearly $4,000 for the DVCCC with Evenings in the Hereafter, which included music by singer/songwriter, Laura Shay, and the performance of her first original piece, “Counting Mississippi’s.”
The Devil You Know will run January 19, 20, 26, and 27 at The Barley Sheaf Players in Lionville.

This two-year old male Border Collie/Lab mix is perhaps one of the gentlest, sweetest dogs we have had here. He was picked up as a stray, but he was once loved and trained. This loving, sensitive dog would make a perfect companion for an older person, or any family who can give as much love and companionship as this sweet boy has to offer.
He’ll be waiting for you at the Susquehanna County Humane Society Shelter in Montrose, (570) 278–1228.
