What does it feel like to experience a mine cave-in? Trapped in total darkness, with a dwindling supply of oxygen, food and water and perhaps a diminishing stock of trust, patience, and sanity as well, five struggle to survive in a 1973 West Virginia coal mine in Butcher Holler Here We Come.

The production is available to Southeast Texas audiences thanks to a unique collaboration between Brooklyn-based theater group Aztec Economy, local independent theater group Ad Hoc Beaumont and Beaumont Community Players.
