Kenard Jackson, Jim Loutzenhiser, Sarah Newhouse and Alex Pollock will star in The Boston Playwrights' Theatre's production of Will Fancher's play, The River Was Whiskey, to run October 27-November 20. James A. Petosa will direct.

The River Was Whiskey is set inside the racial tensions of 1940's Mississippi. In collaboration with sound designer David Wilson, Tennessee-native Fancher has also produced original music for the Southern Gothic ghost story.

Fancher is a recent graduate of Boston University with an MFA in Creative Writing/Playwriting. His writing has been recognized by the Kennedy Center (Rosa Parks Playwriting Award) and the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Conference. His one-act and full-length plays have been showcased in several national and regional venues, such as the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, WordBRIDGE Playwrights Laboratory, Primary Stages, and the Alliance Theatre.
