Event Description

"Daughters of the Appalachians"

November 1, 2, 7, 8. 9, and 10, at

Good Company Theater in West Granby, CT.

Written by storyteller, Linda Goodman

Tickets here:

Directed by Nikki Currie-Huggard and Resa Ferreira. Nannie Wright Talbot Brown portrays matriarch Marthie Potter.

Providing a rare glimpse of the inner lives of the women for whom poverty and isolation were a fact of life, and whose men worked, and often died, in the coal mines, Linda Goodman’s “Daughters of the Appalachians” is a collection of stories like the ones her father told her in the evenings when she was a child.
In the best Southern tradition, these stories, handed down from generation to generation, and embellished by each teller, end up being part history and part imagination, part bragging and part confession.
