The Long Trip Home 2019
February 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Long Trip Home focuses on the lives of ordinary people who encounter extraordinary life circumstances. Often, these harrowing (or hilarious) events lead these beloved community characters away from home, leaving them to discover their own way back. Wilma Chandley navigates life after losing her hearing, and later, after losing much more, and becomes for many a model of living in grace despite life’s rocky path. Vincent Dial finds his way to his calling, moving away from a path he was born into, and finding a trail that led to where he was destined to be. Sue Henley shares a residence with someone (or something) from another century, and each tries to be at home with the other. Johnny Russaw’s story recounts his days as a football player at ETSU during a turning point moment in the country, and what it meant for him to be on the “home team” during those times. These are just a few of the dozens of stories found in this new work, which will be performed at the McKinney Center in February and March of 2019.
