and High Water
The Southern Theater
Come Hell And High Water originated in our encounter with William Faulkner’s novella Old Man. His story of the great Mississippi River flood of 1927 led us to explore the quintessential American themes embedded in his work: race, religion, politics, the dispossessed, the uneducated, and the unforgiving forces of nature. We employed the diverse disciplines of narrative, character, song, and movement to bring this profoundly American story to life.
