Mary Moody Northen Theatre at St. Edward's University presents THE KENTUCKY CYCLE
Robert Schenkkan's THE KENTUCKY CYCLE traces three families from generation to generation through 200 years of history — beginning with the claiming of land in eastern Kentucky and continuing through the Civil War, the birth of coal mining, the unionization of miners and the War on Poverty. This powerful Pulitzer Prize-winning epic American play is presented in two parts.

“…like stepping into the world of a gripping historical novel in which characters become as familiar as kinfolk, the story beckons like a beguiling mystery, and the final scene leaves you wishing it didn't have to end.”
Diane Zuckermann, The Denver Post
