On the darkest night of the year, residents of a secluded Appalachian town gather at local pub, The Gnarly Stump, to share ghost stories and songs.

This world premiere commissioned by Know Theatre pairs a play from Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth martin, the writers behind Know’s Saturday the 14th and We Will Rise: Stories from the Afghan Women’s Writing Project, with songs from Paul Strickland, local fringe favorite and author of The Trailer Park Trilogy, My Messed Upera, and co-author of Andy’s House of [blank].
