Dry winds sweep across the plains. The dust swirls and smothers. Without hope, folks rely on tenacity and superstition to see them through. Can one small boy save the town? Eleven-year-old Jack and his family struggle to survive the Dust Bowl. With no clouds on the horizon, the future is grim. Bullied, not big enough to work, and a disappointment to his father, Jack feels useless in the face of hardship – until he discovers a sinister figure with a face like a thunderstorm. Is it just “dust dementia?” Or has he found a way to pull the town out of desperation?
The Storm in the Barn is written by nationally-recognized playwright, Eric Coble, based on the award-wining graphic novel by Matt Phelan (Scott O’Dell award for historical fiction, an American Library Association Notable Children’s Book selection, and a 2012 Oregon Readers Choice Award nominee).
The Children’s Reading Series (CRS) is a beloved BCT program that presents the best of contemporary children’s theater in a creative environment that is accessible to audience members of all ages.
