2014 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival: Butcher Holler Here We Come
As part of the 2014 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival, Aztec Economy will present Butcher Holler Here We Come. It’s 1973 in a West Virginia coal mine. Following a cave collapse, five coal miners struggle to survive the dwindling supply of oxygen, the lack of food and water, the unraveling sense of passing time, and, even more threatening, their own competing natures. Brutally weaving through family histories, complicated friendships, crooked politics, childhood visions, audacious hopes, eerie dreams, criminal addictions, and fervent spirituality in this run-of-the-mill Appalachian community, Butcher Holler Here We Come is a descent into the male psyche-in-crisis where secret desires, carnal urges, and hidden memories come boiling to the surface in a primitive territory of Earth that mirrors the subliminal mind.
The show will play in the Stone Cottage Theatre.
