Mad River Rising

Get swept away by unforgettable characters and local history in this moving drama.

Determined to save the land he loves, Angus Stewart escapes from his nursing home and is found hiding in the family barn. As a boy, the cantankerous 85-year-old witnessed his Ohio farmhouse wash away in the catastrophic flood of 1937. Now, the floodgates of progress are threatening to sweep it aside once again. Mad River Rising flows from past to present and remembered moments in between as its unforgettable characters wrestle with the uncompromising bonds of family, responsibility and legacy. What results is a poetic, poignant and utterly captivating drama by Dana Yeaton. “Compelling … an engaging and moving play.” — Times Argus
