The plague of religious fundamentalism, intolerance, hypocrisy and prejudice rips through a backwoods community in rural Appalachia and the fate of the naïve, young town beauty hangs in the balance. Will the new, charismatic reverend be able to save Susannah’s soul, or will he pull them both into a fiery hell? Floyd’s powerful American masterpiece weaves together folk tunes, country hymns, lush lyricism and haunting, ravishing melodies in this timeless tale of desire, lust, seduction and revenge.

BLACK SNOW by Mikhail Bulgakov, adapted by Keith Reddin

Often called the ultimate backstage novel, Black Snow was based on Bulgakov’s own experiences with the Moscow Art Theatre and its famed director Stanislavsky, inventor of Method acting. As the publisher notes, “Scenery is chewed, fits are thrown, and the show just might not go on.” The Wall Street Journal wrote, “Mr. Reddin has crafted an incredibly funny and effective farce from Bulgakov’s railings against the autocrats and institutions.”
