“The roaring 20’s on a backwoods farm. A fantastic prohibition tale of a desperate farmer who needs hay for his cows. Quebec Bill (Leon Axt) leads a wild cast of characters through car chases, river runs, and a great train scene that will grab you by the neck and hold on! Kim Bent’s adaptation for Lost Nation Theater is another one of his incredible successes.
I’m telling everybody to GO SEE IT!”
- George Woodard

We went to see this play on Thursday and were terrifically impressed. This play, written by Montpelier Playwright Kim Bent, brings the images, language, characters and mysteries of Howard Frank Mosher's powerful book to Lost Nation's City Hall stage. Very highly recommended.  - John Russell

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend last night’s world premier performance of this play by Kim Bent at Lost Nation Theater. A Vermont story by a Vermont author and adapted for the stage by a Vermont playwright. IT IS A TRULY AMAZING PRODUCTION. Take a lovely foliage drive to Montpelier and treat yourself to this show. IT IS STUNNING!  - Margie Cain

"Enjoyed another great evening of entertainment courtesy of Lost Nation Theater's adaptation of Howard Frank Moshers "Disappearances"
It was another terrific adaptation telling so beautifully another great Vermont story! A wild ride.
And thanks for sharing your vision and talents for the past 30 years!!" - Jack Donavan, WDEV

 

Lost Nation Theater is a Gem in the theater world! There is not a show that I have been to that I haven't loved! The stage is a perfect Shakespeare setting, which they do often. Small space used creatively to create great shows! I highly recommend it! - Leo C Straight
