Barter Theater will be presenting “October, Before I Was Born” by Kingsport Native Lori Tate Matthews. According to the Barter Theatre’s website:
October, Before I was Born” is about “a Kingsport family stranded at their rural farm, desperate for news regarding their loved ones after the October 1960 Tennessee Eastman Company explosion. Emotions come to a boil when the ties between Anne, a soon-to-be mother; Martha, her mother in-law; and Houston, the difficult son and brother-in-law, begin to unravel. Amid their circumstances they may just discover they truly need each other. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as this fast-paced emotional roller coaster follows the family’s attempts to cope with the unknown, ultimately igniting a different kind of explosion.
The show runs from September 27-November 17. Tickets start at $29.
