Journey to Kerrmoor, the farthest fringe of American civilization. Here, in this isolated Appalachian town, a weathered and paranoid people revert to ancient rites to ward-off threats from an increasingly hostile modern world. Can Lorna convince her mother to make the necessary sacrifice and prevent social and ecological disaster? Will the chilling rite be repeated? These questions, and a great deal more, resonate throughout Susan McCully's brilliant, bracing "Appalachian Greek tragedy." McCully has mined her own Scotch-Irish and Appalachian background for a thrilling investigation of a people she both admires and admonishes. Eve Muson directs an all-female cast in this Women's Voices Theater Festival production co-presented by Interrobang Theatre Company and Strand Theatre Company.
Kerrmoor runs approximately 75 minutes with no intermission.
