Holler: An Appalachian Tragedy

Holler: An Appalachian Tragedy Holler: An Appalachian Tragedy
Friday, Dec 12 | 7:00 PM

Holler: An Appalachian Tragedy is an original ballad play written for two actor- musicians and an old-time band. The play explores the folk traditions and contemporary power dynamics of the Appalachian region through events and characters suggested by Shakespeare’s Macbeth and through the banjo-picking, bass- thumping, mandolin-trilling, guitar-strumming, fiddle-shrieking ballads that have echoed through the mountains for centuries. A punishing fairy tale set in the Appalachian Mountains of the American imagination, Holler asks: who should we trust? and what happens when we let our imagination get the best of us?
