Tennessee

by Romulus Linney

AACTFest 1993

State Theatre, Eau Claire, Wisconsin

Set in the mountains of North Carolina in 1870, the play deals with a frontier family; father, mother and son, who work long hours to wrest a living from the small farm they have bought from the county. Unexpectedly an old woman appears, perhaps deranged, and carrying a cowbell and a broken bit of mirror. They offer her food and drink, and she talks of her youth—which was apparently spent on the very farm which is now theirs. Years before, to ward off suitors, the woman had declared that she would only marry a man who could take her to Tennessee, but one man accepted her dare, selling off good bottom land to do so. Now in her later years, she realizes that the new farm which they carved from the wilderness was not in Tennessee at all, but only seven miles distant over the hills.
