Molly Daughter

Coal mining family in the 1800's

Molly Daughter by Deborah Randall, Music by Alan Scott. Directed by Carnessa Ottelin.
February 10 – 26, 2011

Live music by Coty Cockrell and Jason Hedrick, combined with Deb Royals, Renee Wimberley and Alison Lawrence on stage bring this tale of Irish immigrant coal mining families to life.

In 1877 everything in the coal mining town of Wiggans Patch, PA was owned by one man. He worked through channels…hired spies…and legally hanged twenty Irishmen over a two year period, eliminating his political competition. This is the story of the women left to carry on.
