General Store

World Premiere

by Brian Watkins

Rated R
Main Stage

Mike’s determined to keep his faltering general store up and running and he’ll let nothing get in the way: not his two wily daughters, the trucker who thinks he’s dead, the rancher who thinks he’s dying, or even the blizzard outside. But something mysterious is under the floorboards. And it’s getting louder and hungrier. Can Mike save his American Dream from the ravenous creature beneath his store? Or should he just save himself instead? Part Sam Shepard, part Stephen King, Watkins’ writing finds an innovative and thrilling American voice all its own. The most talked-about play in Headwaters New Play Festival history will grip you until the final blackout.
