BUNCOMBE TOWER opens May 10th
May 10th - June 2nd
Buncombe Tower is an occult history of a fictional city much like this one. It follows a mythical path, a possible future, and its prodigal daughter is trying to sort it all out. This world premiere by Asheville playwright Peter Lundblad is a fable about the casualties of gentrification told through poetry, puppetry and fantasy.
