Accompanying them on fiddle is Julia Alvarez, performing an array of traditional and original compositions. The show will be directed by Daniel Bourque.

Romulus Linney (1930-20110, Obie Award winner, has written several plays exploring his southern roots over his long and storied career, including Holy Ghosts, Childe Byron and Southern Comfort, as well as the stage adaptation of Ernest L Gaines' novel A Lesson Before Dying.

Act I: Sand Mountain Matchmaking

In the first of the pair of one-act plays, Sand Mountain Matchmaking, a young, recently widowed preacher’s daughter must repel a trio of unsuitable suitors and find true love with the help of a wise old medicine woman’s colorful suggestion.

Act II: Why the Lord Come to Sand Mountain

In the second of the two one-act plays, Why the Lord Come to Sand Mountain, the Lord and St. Peter visit a dirt-poor family on Christmas Eve to swig corn whiskey and swap progressively absurd folk tales. However, the evening takes a thoughtful turn when the Lord requests one story in particular.

Sand Mountain runs Friday, December 13 through Saturday, December 21, 2013 at the First Church In Boston, located at 66 Marlborough Street, Boston MA 02116.
