This production will run from February 14, 2019 until March 3, 2019. The show begins at 8:00 PM Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:00 PM on Sundays. The doors open an hour before curtain. Parking is available in the lot across from the theatre as well as on the street. 

Tickets are available at redherring.info and are $25.00 each, or you may take advantage of our "Pay What You Can" option at the door and pay a price that is more comfortable. 

"Dirt" is a hilarious comedy set in the heart of Appalachia. Two estranged bothers push sibling rivalry beyond absurdity to the point of death. Jimmy returns to the family cabin after drifting from coast to coast for 20 years. He and his brother Rusty need to find the remains of their dead father, whom they buried beneath the cabin floor decades ago. The state has taken possession of the property to build a road through the cabin and the two brothers must find their father’s remains before the state does. As they excavate, the paternal twins dig up much more than bones in this twisted and sardonic comedy. Imagine a Cohen Brothers version of True West.
