The Cotton Patch Gospel by Tom Key and Russell Treyz with music by Harry Chapin
Directed by Herbie Barnes
(based on The Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John by Clarence Jordan)
Running July 26-Aug 4, 2018
This “Greatest Story Ever Retold” is presented in a setting of rural Georgia with country music songs, the final and perhaps best work of Harry Chapin. As the Gospel begins, they sing that “Somethin’s a-brewin’ in Gainesville.” Herod is the mayor of Atlanta and, inevitably, Christ is lynched by local thugs only to rise again. This is a spirited and rocking musical production featuring a bluegrass orchestra and supported by the BCT Young Company. The Cotton Patch Gospel will be performed environmentally at Hannibal City Hall Council Chamber.
