Theatrical documentary play inspired by people of Coal River

Coal River written and directed by Becky Hill is an original documentary theatre project inspired by the people of Coal River Valley, West Virginia. The show focuses on a community in Southern West Virginia as they face Mountain Top Removal Mining. The language of this piece is formed from actual interviews, documents and speeches. The community member’s voices were taken from interviews collected by myself and Jen Osha within Raleigh and Boone County. All performances are free of charge. Donations are appreciated. All proceeds will go Marsh Fork Community Association.
