About This Show

The 2005 PEN IS A MIGHTY SWORD winner is Kato McNickle for her play, A Yankee Trader, which finds Dillon Taber down on his luck and the law at his doorstep. The old world is being re-invented all around the Tabers, who have been traders as long as anyone remembers but even a stubborn man must change with the times. In a moment of desperation, Dillon trades his wife for a car and goes on the run to keep his freedom. Amidst the ever-increasing fury of the Great Hurricane of 1938, Dillon’s bargain brings personal disaster and transformation as the storm wreaks havoc all around him.
