Hatchet Lady: Carry Nation, Angel of Destruction
written by Savannah Reich
music by Luc Parker
directed by John Heimbuch
Carry Nation splinters unsuspecting saloons with her mighty hatchet! She targets nothing less than the limits of society. The men would shut her down, but God calls her on, and her awesome legacy is one of inspiration, passion and determination. An unabashedly feminist rock musical! What do you have that needs to be smashed?
Originally staged December 1 – 16, 2017 at the Red Eye Theatre

"And the ship went out into the High Sea and passed into the West, until at last on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country under a swift sunrise."
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
ABOUT THE SHOW
Have you ever imagined a world whose laws of physics differed from our own? In our current dystopian future, the Not-So-Silent Planet is entering cyberspace. Listen to some of the most frequent contributors to the country's only recurring open-mic dedicated to speculative fiction: fantasy, sci-fi, or supernatural horror!
This November, we turn to the stuff of life itself -- of what we breathe and what we drink, of spirits and inspiration, of beings that walk through the air or lurk in the darkest depths. Featuring original fiction by regulars Vu Dang, Pat Harrigan, Michael Merriam, and Tim Wick, with up-and-coming playwright Matthew Stoffel as our special guest teller! Tune in, and hear about places of which you've never dreamt.
WARNING: while we appreciate the importance of safe spaces, we also appreciate the importance of unsafe spaces, in which writers can experiment with edgier material. None of the stories are screened, and performers may present adult content. We’re free-speech absolutists, and recognize that that occasionally comes at an uncomfortable price.
Growing poetry and storytelling one word at a time, Word Sprout is based in Minneapolis and specializes in producing and capturing Live Literature at its finest. We are committed to providing both open forums and curated stages for people to embrace and share the words that are most important to them in storytelling, poetry, and genre bending verbal explosions.
PRAISE FOR THE NOT-SO-SILENT PLANET
"It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that ultra-hip MPLS + STPL has an open mic night dedicated to...sci-fi, fantasy, tales of the supernatural and such. It also shouldn’t be a surprise that the quality of the material is higher than an H.G. Wells zeppelin."
- Hitara, Secrets of the City
"...that was some delightfully trippy shit...mind-bendingly strange and fun...they burrow into your mind and keep you thinking about them long after they’re done."
- Matthew Everett, Single White Fringe Geek
