Hatchet Lady

By Savannah Reich

Directed by Olivia Lilley

In 1900, Carry Amelia Nation drove a horse and cart to Kiowa, Kansas, on a mission from God. She went into the first saloon she found and smashed the place up with a small hatchet, believing that she was saving her fellow Americans from the curse of the demon rum. Hatchet Lady is an original riot grrl rock musical with a cast of five women and a live band. An altar to the powers of destruction, complete with dancing horses, angels, NPR journalists and a tornado. A Saints Play for a martyr that no one ever wanted. A celebration of women with hatchets.

  • Choreographed by Cheryl Nowlin
  • Stage Managed by Peter Wilde
