Know to Go – Theatre at a Distance

Stream Team

Darkest Night at the Gnarly Stump

On the darkest night of the year, residents of a secluded Appalachian town gather at a local pub, The Gnarly Stump, to share ghost stories and songs. When an outsider arrives reporting the mysterious disappearance of her sister, the lines between story and reality become blurred–there’s more than just trees in those woods.

This world premiere commissioned by Know Theatre pairs a play from Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth martin, the writers behind Know’s Saturday the 14th, We Will Rise: Stories from the Afghan Women’s Writing Project, and the live action Disney film Mulan (2020), with songs from Paul Strickland, local fringe favorite, nationally acclaimed story-teller, and author of The Trailer Park TrilogyBalls of Yarns, and co-author of Andy’s House of [blank].

Originally filmed in Know Theatre’s Underground bar, in December of 2016.
