“Elephants got those brains like traps, don’t forget nothin’. People? People got short mem’ries…” – Hungry Townsperson

September, 1916. Carrying boundless momentum (and a 6-ton elephant), a traveling circus makes its way to a small town in Tennessee, only to stumble into catastrophe. A poignant story based on true events, Elephant’s Graveyard uses humor, music and deep pathos to explore the multiple perspectives of history, the elusiveness of memory, and the uniquely American appetite for spectacle and violence. Featuring an original Piedmont Blues score.  Keene Prize for Literature.

ABUNDANCE

by Beth Henley – directed by Baugh

​ 9/25/17 & 9/30/17

​ From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Crimes of the Heart comes this poignant but unromanticized story of the hard lives of pioneers on the high plains of Wyoming in the 1860’s. Macon and Bess are two mail-order brides, lured to the West by the promise of new beginnings through marriage to men they have never met. While waiting for their respective husbands-to-be, one bubbling with optimism, the other mousy and plain, the two women become instant best friends. As Abundance follows the two women through their friendship and adventures for the next 25 years, this Western epic unearths the dark underside of American mythology.
