RE: NYC’S AZTEC ECONOMY MAKES WEST COAST PREMIER AT HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL 2019
(Los Angeles, CA) The Award-Winning (BroadwayWorld 2017 Outstanding Original Script), Nationally-touring, original production of Butcher Holler Here We Come by Casey Wimpee makes its West-Coast premier at the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival, with the original New York City cast, directed by Leah Bonvissuto. Synopsis: 1973, West Virginia. Following a cave collapse, 5 coal miners struggle to survive the dwindling supply of oxygen, the lack of food and water, the unravelling sense of passing time, and, even more threatening, their own competing natures. Brutally weaving through family histories, complicated friendships, crooked politics, childhood visions, audacious hopes, eerie dreams, criminal addictions, and fervent spirituality in this run-of-the-mill Appalachian community, Butcher Holler Here We Come is a descent into the male psyche-in-crisis where secret desires, carnal urges, and hidden memories come boiling to the surface in a primitive territory of Earth that mirrors the subliminal mind.
