The Hatfields and the McCoys were at the center of the most famous -- and infamous -- family feud in American history. These two rural families, living in Kentucky and West Virginia, have become synonymous with family honor, justice and revenge for the war they fought with words and weapons. Inspired both by Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" and factual events, "Hatfield & McCoy" takes place in a philosophically polarized America just as it's emerging from the Civil War. Romance and gunfire erupt when young Rose Anna McCoy and Johnse Hatfield fall in love, marry in secret and vow to reconcile their feuding families against all odds. Their tale of woe is served up with a heaping helping of original Americana tunes, connecting times past to a very familiar present. See it on the stage of The House Theatre of Chicago's Chopin Theatre. [less-]
