“ROVE is catharsis. It’s cleansing and memory and music and painfully, achingly full of love… Something all of us feel, and fear, about our family.” // EXEUNT MAGAZINE
Celebrated writer, raconteur and creator of my heart is hitchhiking down peachtree street returns with an evocative exploration of family mythmaking and personal legacy.
This is an exploration. I want to tell a story – well, my family’s story. Some of it may be true and some may not. There was a song my mom used to sing to me, which her father sang to her. It may have been Irish (that’s where he came from) or even American (that’s where I come from). Or possibly Scottish (weird, because none of us are from Scotland).
With live folk music performed by Rhiannon Armstrong, J. Fergus Evans uses poetry to respin a yarn told many times over, untangling old family stories and making peace with those truths that lie buried beneath the years past – a show for anyone who has ever tried to untangle a family anecdote, or wished they knew more about where they came from.
