“Ivy Rowe” from the Lee Smith novel Fair and Tender Ladies

Pure theatrical exhilaration awaits in this off-Broadway, Edinburgh Fringe-approved hit, which follows a spunky mountain woman on a journey through life “livin’ on love.” Painting a vivid picture of 20th century revivals, mine disasters, rural electrification, the Depression and three wars, The New York Times dubbed this stirring stage adaptation “a rare and heartfelt performance that pays tribute to the women of Appalachia, and to the heroism of strugglers everywhere.”
