The Diviners (play)

  • Hedgesville High School

The Thespians of Hedgesville High School have taken on the challenge of an emotional play by Jim Leonard, Jr. 

Show times are at 7PM on Nov. 17, 18 and 19. Tickets are $5. Location is at Hedgesville High School.

SUMMARY: This marvelously theatrical play is the story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930s. When the boy was young he almost drowned. This trauma and the loss of his mother in the same accident has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, set on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best. He works as a mechanic for the boy's father. The town doesn't have a preacher and the women try to persuade him to preach while he tries to persuade the child to wash. When the preacher finally gets the boy in the river and is washing him, the townspeople mistake the scene for a baptism. They descend on the event and, in the confusion, the boy drowns. (A special arrangement with Samuel French).

  • Library

As part of the Library "History Reads" Program hear David Phillips speak about his book on the Jesse Scouts.

Excerpt: One of the most important functions of the cavalry during the Civil War involved the collection of intelligence. Skilled volunteers were selected from many cavalry regiments and these brave men moved in the advance or on the flanks of their regiments in order to prevent any surprise attacks. Frequently, they moved independently to collect information on the presence, condition, and intentions of the enemy forces in their vicinity.

In order to do this effectively, many of these men began to wear the enemy's uniform as they conducted their operations. COME HEAR MORE DURING THIS PRESENTATION!

At 2:30 PM enjoy the Sacagawea historical perfomance.
