Hooten Holler

Hooten Holler

March 3rd, 12pm

Panel Discussion: March 7th, 8pm

About Hooten Holler, Created by Ketch Secor and Critter Fuqua:

Shy, unassuming, 20-year-old Wiley Young has never been far from his home in Hooten Holler, where he runs the general store with his father. All that’s about to change, however, when a mysterious man visits the holler and Wiley discovers something he never knew about himself: the boy can play! Armed with his mother’s banjo and dreams of stardom, Wiley makes it all the way to Music City, USA where he learns that the cost of making it to the top of the charts may be more than he’s willing to pay. A brand-new, honky-tonk musical fable created by Ketch Secor, founding member of the Grammy award winning Old Crow Medicine Show, and Critter Fuqua.

* Hooten Holler is proudly presented as a part of AFPP 2022

Barter Theatre's annual Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights celebrates the richness of the Appalachian tradition by showcasing the stories of the region, both past and present, and the inspiration it provides the writers who live here. Since 1933, The AFPP has gained national attention by developing a process that has resulted in new plays being produced not only on Barter’s stages, but in regional theatres across the country. AFPP readings are free and open to the public. Audiences participate in the development process by attending readings, participating in panel discussions, and sharing feedback.

AFPP will be held virtually this year. The readings will be free, but pre-registration is required and will open on January 24th 2022. Sign up for updates in the form to the right!
