World Premiere Musical

Set against the backdrop of 1920s Appalachia, DARLIN’ CORY is a haunting new musical by playwright & novelist Phillip DePoy (EDWARD FOOTE) and Grammy Award winner Kristian Bush (TROUBADOUR).  In a tiny mountain town with no road in – and no road out – a community carries secrets of all sizes.  But when a young woman with ambition and intelligence collides with a pastor deeply committed to preserving the status quo, cracks begin to appear in the town’s well-constructed façade. And when a stranger appears with a mysterious backstory and the best moonshine anyone’s ever tasted – some of those secrets threaten to spill.  With an original folk-country score, this modern-day myth inspired by local lore promises to leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
