A riveting and powerfully emotional look at the 2010 Upper Big Branch mine explosion that killed 29 men and tore apart families and communities. Based on first-person accounts of survivors and family members the play digs deep into the lives of those affected by the worst mining disaster in recent American history. A haunting telling of a tragedy that gives voice to those yet unheard, lays bare the deadly forces of greed and celebrates the enduring power of love.

Written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen with
original music from Steve Earle. Jessica Blank also directs.

Cast includes Mary Bacon, Amelia Campbell, Michael Gaston, Ezra Knight, Thomas Kopache, Michael Laurence, Deirdre Madigan and Melinda Tanner.
