Experimental theatre artist Amy Rox Surratt, and supporting ensemble, create fictionally famous reality TV child star “Amy Surratt.” At home, things have been heading South for a while. Now, “Amy” investigates her genuine Appalachian roots and struggles to come back to something she never really had – taking the audience to hell in a hand basket with her. The result is a surreal Appalachian love letter to historical and personal traumas.
Queering "authentic Americana" through a pastiche of stereotypes, this FIRST and LAST (show) reveals the tragicomedy of fractured identities and origins -- don’t worry, though -- we got enough mason jars, bluegrass jams, rusted cars, and southern fried meta-theatrics for everyone.
Home is where your hell is! Y’all come back now.
