HATFIELD & McCOY
By Shawn Pfautsch
Original Songs by Shawn Pfautsch and Matt Kahler
Directed by Matt Hawkins
It’s the mostly true tale of the most infamous family feud in American history. On the border of Kentucky and West Virginia, North and South, Fact and Fiction, two cabins both alike in dignity wage a whip-smart war of words and bullets.
This modern love letter to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet lands us in a philosophically polarized America emerging from the Civil War. But conflict reverberates at home. Gunfire and romance erupt when young Rose Anna McCoy and Johnse Hatfield fall in love, marry in secret, and vow to reconcile their feuding families against all odds. Their tale of woe is served up with a heaping helping of original Americana tunes, connecting times past to our familiar present.
Inspired by the true tale of hell-raisin' and heartbreak
Showing at the Chopin Theatre January 19-March 11, 2018!

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
“A perfect evening of illusion and laughter… The Magic Parlour TRANSFORMED a roomful of tired adults into WIDE-EYED, WIDE AWAKE innocents. And that in itself is Watkins’ most impressive trick."
Chicago Theater Beat
