About the show
The GOOD OLD BOYS play features original music and tells the story of two brothers - Abe and Caleb. The show is loosely inspired by the Dukes of Hazzard and based on dozens of interviews with southern men.
Five Episodes span four days with each episode popping up in different spots around Augusta County. Actors invite audience members to help them set the stage (a parking lot space) using coolers, BBQs and red solo cups. Actors play with remote control cars and miniature army men while they invite the audience into conversations about class, race, grief, and what it means to be a working class southern man.
The Episodes revolve around two brothers coming of age, each with a different take on the Civil War, each with a different definition of justice, each wrestling with personal demons of depression stemming from loss.
