Coal Camp Memories

Coal Camp Memories is a one-act play, written and performed by Karen Vuranch. Karen researched life in the West Virginia coal fields by talking to those who lived in the coal camps. Hallie Marie's story is a composite of many people who shared their memories. Vuranch ages in front of the audience, growing from an exuberant ten-year-old to a demure teenager, then a young wife, and finally an old woman wise with years. During scene changes, a musician plays traditional Appalachian music. Coal Camp Memories is a gentle and poignant story that recreates an era while it delights audiences of all ages.
