The Kentucky Historical Society is partnering with Bluegrass Theatre Guild to present a world premiere play, The Feuds of Bloody Breathitt.  The play was written by local playwright, author, and documentary filmmaker, Jerry Deaton.


Deaton, a descendent of the feuding families, grew up hearing stories of events that took place in a pre-Civil War cabin in his own backyard in Breathitt Co.  Following years of extensive research, interviews, and historical site visits, Deaton has crafted a series of four one-act vignettes that bring to life the evolution of feuds from 1873 to 1912.


Performance dates are May 12-15, at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, 100 W. Broadway, Frankfort.  Tickets are available at:, or at the door. For more information go to the Bluegrass Theatre Guild page on Facebook.
