This December, Hub Theatre Company of Boston will close its highly acclaimed debut season with a sparkling Appalachian-flavored holiday show; Sand Mountain, a pair of one-act plays by award winning American playwright Romulus Linney.
In the first piece, Sand Mountain Matchmaking, a young recently widowed preacher’s daughter must repel a trio of unsuitable suitors and find true love with the help of a wise old medicine woman’s colorful suggestion.
In the second story, Why the Lord Come to Sand Mountain, the Lord and St. Peter visit a penniless family on Christmas Eve to swig corn whiskey and swap progressively absurd folk tales. However, the evening takes a thoughtful turn when the Lord requests one tale in particular.
Romulus Linney’s lively, ribald and unforgettable backwoods characters are portrayed by an ensemble of fine local actors, including Olev Aleksander, Yoni Bronstein, Ann Carpenter, Lauren Elias, Robert Orzalli, Bill Salem, and Connor Upton. Accompanying them on fiddle is Julia Alvarez, performing an array of traditional and original compositions. The show will be directed by Daniel Bourque.
