The House Theatre has announced the cast and production team for its all-new production of HATFIELD & McCOY, written by Shawn Pfautsch and directed by Matt Hawkins playing at the Chopin Theatre. Inspired by the true story of famous feuding families, and by Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, the production features original songs by Pfautsch and Matt Kahler.
HATFIELD & McCOY received its world premiere at The House in 2006. This iteration features new staging and new design with additional changes to script — all workshopped this past year at the University of Chicago’s UChicago Performance Lab.
