‘Ezell: Ballad of a Land Man’ at Farm Arts

Posted

DAMASCUS, PA — It’s described as an “environmental, cultural and spiritual parable,” and is the brainchild of a farm-based theatre company, Clear Creek Creative.

“Ezell: Ballad of a Land Man” will be performed at Farm Arts Collective at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4; and again at 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 5.

The play is written and performed by Bob Martin.

“Ezell” at Farm Arts includes a farm-fresh meal following each performance, plus live Appalachian-style music by Clear Creek and local musicians.

The three-hour performance includes walking the land at Willow Wisp. Mobility assistance is available; see below.

“Ezell” is the story of an Appalachian farmer who tries to make sense of the time, place and condition in which he lives. He’s torn between the money promised in a fracking boom and the land in which he was raised.

It is, Farm Arts says, a story of domination and resilience. It’s also about climate change and the extractive resource industry, the love of nature and human resilience.

The play is produced by Carrie Brunk and directed by Nick Slie. Other performers are   Faye Adams-Eaton, Nicole Garneau and Lisa Shattuck, Jess Beveridge, John Roth, Colette Ballew. The guest musicians are Doug Rogers, Roger Brinkerhoff and Elizabeth Rose.

The cost of tickets ranges between $15 and $35.

Farm Arts Collective is located at Willow Wisp Farm. For more information and full credits, visit https://www.willowwisporganic.com/farm-arts-collective/.
