Audible Theater is proud to present The Public Theater's critically acclaimed, "deeply affecting and gorgeously authentic" (Time Out New York) production of COAL COUNTRY, back by popular demand for a limited engagement.
Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, the creative minds behind the award-winning docudrama The Exonerated, bring their signature style to this strikingly innovative New York Times Critic’s Pick that delves into the aftermath of the West Virginia mine explosion of 2010, highlighting the indomitable resilience of an American community on a quest for justice in this "profound and intensely human story told in an incredibly powerful 90 minutes." (Daily Beast)
Featuring the musical talents of three-time Grammy Award® winner Steve Earle, COAL COUNTRY combines the country and folk legend's "soaring emotional heft and superbly evocative string-picking" (The Hollywood Reporter) with actual first-person accounts from survivors and family members, immortalizing their stories of survival.
