'Sally McCoy' tells local history, sparks thought as next show at The App

By  | 

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - The Appalachian Center for the Arts is bringing a mountain-centered story to the stage this month.

Sally McCoy tells the story of the Hatfield and McCoy feud from the perspective of a mother who is trying to navigate the waters of a bloody battle.

According to Executive Director Robin Irwin, the show provides insight into the gender roles of the time period as well as the mindset that created for the people involved in the feud.

She said the show is appropriate for middle school-aged children and should provide a great time for those who like to think.

"It's rich with questions about what to do and why to do it. And the debate on what's right and versus what's good," Irwin said.

The show, which is the 2018 Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights winner, kicks off with two sneak-peek shows Friday and Saturday before officially taking the stage on September 19.
