Joseph Sobol performs Jack and the Least Gal: A Fantasia of Appalachian Wonder Tales

Journey into the phantasmagorical world of Jack, the Appalachian wonder tale hero, and his female counterpart, the Youngest Daughter (“Least Gal”), in Joseph Sobol’s virtuoso contemporary retelling of the Hero/Heroine’s Journey. Weaving traditional and original songs with stories and his distinctive finger style cittern playing, Sobol teases the ancient tales to bring out their overtones of power and helplessness, sexuality and violence, witchcraft and wisdom, in a performance humorous, sinister, and revelatory. (Appropriate for adults and youth 12 and older.)
