Winner of the 1992 Pulitzer Prize, this sweeping epic of three families in eastern Kentucky spans 200 years of American history from 1775 to 1975. In The Kentucky Cycle, a series of nine short plays, Robert Schenkkan has created a mesmerizing epic of the Cumberland Plateau and an unblinking look at the truth behind our American mythology. This live event is not one to be missed!
Spanning two centuries, from 1775 to 1975, The Kentucky Cycle presents the story of three families - Black, White, and Native American - whose lives are irrevocably intertwined. Fast-paced and finely drawn, Schenkkan's stunning, two-part play examines an American past which have created, for better or worse, the country we are today.
"[The Kentucky Cycle is] written with the kind of impassioned economy that immediately evokes memories of Sophocles and Euripides, short, taut, bloody actions that sparingly recreate the evil, mayhem, and retribution which permeates each of these two turbulent evenings." —TheaterWeek
