acclaimed play on the life of mountain outlaw Lewis Redmond is brought
to life in a riveting performance by Milton Higgins. DVD includes the
winner of the
PAUL GREEN MULTIMEDIA AWARD
from the NC Historian's Society
At the time of his capture in 1881, Lewis Redmond was the most famous outlaw in the country, outshining contemporaries Billy-The-Kid and Jesse James. To the people of Southern Appalachia he was an American Robin Hood, fighting revenuers and bootlegging ‘moonshine’ to pay their taxes and save their land in the lean and hopeless years of Reconstruction. Northern journalists depicted him as a degenerate, cold-blooded murderer, even as Southern Appalachia celebrated him as a hero. Gary Carden's masterful play sheds light on a time and place in American history that has long been shrouded in mystery.
