World Premiere of The Viola Mountain Door Company
A one-man play written and performed by Greg Abbott with direction by Marie Broderick.
Who said makin’ doors was simple and the people who make ’em simple minded? Who ever said that never spent a day with the folks at the Viola Mountain Door Company. Tucked away in the hills, along a placid river, stands a common looking factory full of men and women who are decidedly uncommon.
Inspired by his Indiana roots, Greg Abbott writes from his experiences of the cities and the small towns of the Midwest. Memories of family reunions in the Appalachian Mountains serve as the basis for the fictitious characters of Viola.
Makin’ doors is hard work and everyone needs a break, especially when an idiot runs the place.
