    Smell the crisp, cool air of Southern Appalachia, where pensioner Annie Nations has peacefully settled on her mountain farm. She’s busy tending to the household as she anticipates a visit from her son, Dillard, who sought fame and fortune rather than the footprints of his father, Hector. But at the approach of a reckless real estate developer who has begun uprooting the neighborhood, Annie is faced with an agonizing decision. Is there a price tag for the Nations’ family memories, and can their deep, tangled roots be replanted without wilting? Annie must negotiate her often humorous and heart-wrenching memories to navigate this unbeaten and unplanned path.

    “This play – this dear, gritty, honest and sweet play – has so much to teach us, to remind us. Our world these days, runs at lightspeed.” Director Emily Scott Banks commented, “This play reminds us our hands were made for more than typing on a keyboard, our feet for more than hitting a gas pedal, and senses for more than sitting in sealed up rooms. It reminds us to imagine, to sing, to make, to make-do, to listen and not just speak.”
    The cast of Foxfire is comprised of Elly Lindsay as Annie Nations, John S. Davies as Hector Nations, Mark Quach as Prince Carpenter, Whitney Coulteras Holly Burrell, Ian Ferguson as Dillard Nations, and Stan Graner as Doctor. Ferguson also creates the music within the play on guitar.
