The Themantics Group presents the world premiere of Hazard County, a new play by Allison Moore. The production is directed by Blake Lawrence.
Hazard County is the story of Ruth, an impoverished young mother in rural Kentucky struggling to raise twins after the tragic death of her husband. One day she meets Blake, a tabloid TV news reporter from LA who is combing small-town America for stories about "real people." When he discovers that Ruth has a small fortune left unclaimed, her story seems to be just what he's looking for. With Blake under pressure to unearth an Enquirer-style story, will Ruth be forced to face the secret she's denied for years? The answer partially lies in an unlikely source: 1970's television staple The Dukes of Hazzard.
