Written by Jessica Blank & Erik Jensen
Original Music by Steve Earle
Directed by Jessica Blank
In 2010, the Upper Big Branch mine explosion killed 29 men, and tore a hole in the lives of countless others.
In this riveting, emotionally stunning new work based on first-person accounts by survivors and family members, Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, award-winning writers of The Exonerated, and three-time Grammy Award-winning country/folk legend Steve Earle, dig deep into the lives and loss of the most deadly mining disaster in recent U.S. history.
Jessica Blank directs this haunting world premiere that gives voice to those yet unheard, and shines a piercing light on the deadly forces of greed and the enduring power of love.
