What is “A West Virginia Story?”

The third play from area playwright JC Lacek (Abomination on Bolt Mountain, FRACK!!) AWVS is billed as “an audio-video 80s comedy event of mountainous proportions.” Telling the story of the ups and downs of the fictional Callahan Family, the play pulls lighthearted inspiration from early 1980s film, TV, politics, sports, and pop culture. Unlike previous theatrical performances, AWVS marks the WV Collective’s first-ever audio-video hybrid stage experience.
