Cohesion Theatre Company is proud to announce the first production of their 2017/18 theatrical season, the world premiere of Cohesion Co-Founder, Alice Stanley’s critically acclaimed new play, Sally McCoy. Cohesion Co-Founder, Brad Norris will direct this story of desperation, honor, and strength in the face of adversity.

After a successful workshop as part of the Strand Theater’s Women on Top Festival, Cohesion has picked up Stanley’s work for full production. “It is a perfect fit for our season’s theme, E Pluribus Unum”, says Cohesion Co-Founder, Brad Norris. “We are proud to begin our season long exploration into American identity, difference, and unity with such a distinctly American story.” Set in August of 1882, in the midst of the first gruesomely violent event of the legendary Hatfield and McCoy feud, and with her three eldest sons captured by the Hatfield clan, Sally McCoy defies her womanly place in the home and crosses miles of Appalachian wilderness in the dark of night in order to save her children from certain death at the vengeful hands of the Hatfields. After traveling miles alone in the dark of night to the home of the Hatfield patriarch, “Devil” Anse Hatfield, Sally refuses to let anything stand in her way until she’s seen the “Devil” face to face.
