The trunk of any family tree is just the branch of another. Using a family legend, playwright Posey crafts a story full of legend, lore, love, loss, betrayal and growth. Starting in 1850, the play follows many generations of a family created by the joining of a full blooded Cherokee gentleman and a British immigrant looking to escape her family’s selfishly ambitious past.
