Oak Cemetery Series: Butterfly Wings

Every October, Burning Coal Theatre partners with the historic Oakwood Cemetery to present plays based on the lives of people buried in the Oakwood Cemetery, their partners, neighbors, associates and nemeses'. For this year's play Artistic Director Jerome Davis has adapted a new book by Oakwood Historians Bruce G. Miller and Robin Simonton titled "Life And Death in High Places", about a particularly dramatic incident that reverberated throughout the Gilded Age in Raleigh. It details the true account of a shooting on Fayetteville Street in the year 1903.
