This American Life episode about small town theater?

I'm trying to find a This American Life episode about a small town that was economically depressed. One year they put on a show where residents told their stories and it became a yearly tradition that is now the basis of the town's economy.

I think the town was in the South and at least at one point, they brought in a director from NYC, which maybe caused some tension? The show might have had the word gravy in the title, but that could be wrong.

Swamp Gravy was an episode on the NPR podcast Planet Money and the town was Colquitt, Georgia. I found the episode entertaining. Here's a Wikipedia article.
