Beyond the Blue Mountains
Beyond the Blue Mountains is a unique project. Based on Kentucky writer Jane Wilson Joyce’s book of the same name, LFL explores her evocative poetry through ensemble storytelling and movement to recreate one Boyle County, Kentucky family’s experiences on the Oregon Trail. Gabe Clay has Oregon fever, 13-year old Nancy is filled with impatience, teen Abby anticipates how her life will change with Gus Whittier part of the wagon train, and mother Sarah has a sense of foreboding at the journey’s upheaval. Join these and other characters of the wagon train as LFL’s performers move easily between characters in their signature approach to theatre.
