TN Stage Co. to Produce Festival Winner

Tennessee Stage Company has just announced next month's production of Hoppy's Trunk, the winner of this year's edition of the company's annual New Play Festival. Written by West Virginia playwright Mike Farley (whose 2004 play A Kinder, Gentler Vampire also won the festival), Hoppy's Trunk is described by the producers as "a cross between Arsenic and Old Lace and Reefer Madness."

Hoppy's Trunk runs Thursdays through Sundays, March 13-29, at Theatre Knoxville Downtown on Gay Street. The full schedule and tickets are available at or by calling (865) 546-4280.
