Winner of the 2020 Trustus Playwrights’ Festival

This play contains mature sexual content.

As the play begins, audiences are transported to a holler in the Shenandoah Valley. Juniper prepares to spend a perfect life in a perfect cabin with her perfect partner, Blake. That is, until Maeve appears in the doorway. Telling tall tales and crooning high lonesomes, Maeve beguiles Juniper return to Gin – a past self who once lived and loved in this here house. As Juniper attempts to exorcise her pursuit of passion and maintain the stable life she’s created with Blake, DOWN IN THE HOLLER witnesses a collision of class and queerness, ultimately asking how we reconcile who we were and who we thought we would become. DOWN IN THE HOLLER received a virtual reading in 2020 and will now receive its world premiere on the Thigpen Mainstage. Directed by Dewey Scott-Wiley, the play features Tashera Pravato, Elizabeth Houck-Zozaya, Kathleen Pennyway, and Christine Hellman.
