Cry of the New York Debut

Wednesday, March 2nd, at Judson Church’s Bailout Theatre

From Adelind Horan, creator  and performer of this wonderful one woman show:

Cry of the Mountain: A Documentary Play about Mountaintop Removal in Appalachia (my one-woman show) will be making its’ NYC debut with Bailout Theatre at the beautiful Judsen Memorial Church right next to Washington Square Park on Wednesday, March 2nd!

Bail Out Theatre at Judson Church

The coolest part is: get there at 7:30 for a free catered dinner, the show starts at 8 and that’s also FREE!

In case you’re curious, in the show I play 13 real people (activists, coal company executives, scholars, artists, and coalfield residents) using their words verbatim from original interviews. A very cute banjo player accompanies the monologues.

Here. This has a little promo video on it: www.wholetheatre.org/mountain

The show will (hopefully) run about an hour and afterward there will be a talkback with MTR specialists.

In other wonderful news, today the EPA vetoed the largest single mountaintop removal permit in West Virginia history, the Spruce No. 1 Mine!

Yesssss! Get excited! Come learn more about MTR, enjoy free food and theatre, and learn how to help make more of these exciting victories happen! Bring friends!
