Both Megs and Davey survived the Vietnam War, but they’re having trouble surviving back home. This April morning, bright and early at 5 a.m., Megs is banging on his buddy’s door announcing it’s the start of fishing season. He never suspects Martha , his friend’s older sister, will be the one to open the door-to a myriad of wondrous new possibilities.

January 18 – March 17, 2019, By Randal Myler and Dan Wheetman, Directed by Randal Myler. World Premiere Event. From the creators of The Rep’s hit production Back Home Again: On The Road With John Denver comes this exploration of the music and culture of America’s first superhighway, the Mississippi River. From the iron red water in Minnesota to the deep, dark Southern Delta, the river carries the stories and songs of the people. Come take a ride on the Mississippi— guided by the voices of the men and women who lived and worked on the river, tied together with the observations and insights of the Mississippi’s most famous traveler, Mark Twain. Performed by three world-class musicians, including David Lutken (Woody Sez, John Denver), it’s a journey through America’s Heartland and features traditional songs like “Dance Boatmen Dance,” “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,” and “Deep River Blues.”
