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: btg.yapsody.com, or at the door. For more information go to the Bluegrass Theatre Guild page on Facebook.
