Teatro delle Muse gearing up to open local playwright’s new play, Hecate Hill
Bill Fountain finally gets to direct his original play.
When I interviewed Bill Fountain earlier this year, we talked a lot about his ability to wear so many caps in the theater world, whether it be directing, writing, or performing. His first published play, Hecate Hill is going to be fully staged by the theater company, Teatro delle Muse, and he is also getting the opportunity to direct his own work. Plus, there are now at least eight planned productions of it across the United States at the high school and college level.
The show is about a group of cycling friends who meet up for a reunion in a remote cabin in Southern Oklahoma rumored to be Bigfoot territory. Just as they arrive, there are news reports of a nearby hunter killing a Bigfoot, and suddenly the friends find themselves completely isolated as an electromagnetic pulse shuts down power grids all over the world, and the shrieking creatures attack. Out in the dark woods, the six friends fight to survive the night. But is it really happening? Will anyone survive to find out the truth about Hecate Hill?
Just in time for Halloween, the show will only play from October 26 - 31 so try and check it out during its short run. Tickets can be purchased online.
