About This Show

Using rural moutain music traditions Hillbilly Antigone paints late 19th century mountain feud folklore on a Greek tragedy backdrop, creating a highly original and compelling piece of musical theatre. This is a story that is full of bizarre, wicked and all too human characters. It tells the tale of the ongoing fued between the Flicks and the Wallers, who have been fighting on Badd Mountain for as long as anyone can remember. Antigone Flick and Harmon Waller have created a place in their heart where the feud can’t touch. But when the County Judge and Preacher Creon Waller, espousing a flammable potion of religion and law, declare the body of Antigone’s brother Amos is strung up as an example of the wages of sin, she is forced to take a stand.
