“Miss Dessa” is a delightful comedy telling the story of the Warnette family, and the challenges associated with shared inherited property. In “Miss Dessa”, one of the relatives schemes to outwit the relative wielding the power. This powerful and exciting comedy has lots of twists and turns that will have you chuckling out loud.
