Visit Joe Whitefeather (and bring the family!)
WORLD PREMIERE. It’s the 1970s and the small town of Beaver Gap, Pennsylvania has a problem. Tourism has declined, and it doesn’t look like there is any hope on the horizon. However, when a passionate resident joins forces with the bewildered city council, they devise a plan to rename the town to honor a dead, Native American war hero who never even visited the town during his lifetime. It’s a plan so wild – so insane – it just might work!
Visit Joe Whitefeather (and bring the family!) by Bruce Graham plays beginning April 5, 2023, in FST's Gompertz Theatre.
Run Time: 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission
