The Mountain is a new play about sisters (Ada and Hettie Jones) who, in the early 1900’s, have fled their hometown after a coal mining disaster devastated the area. The tale is told ten years later as the women perform a live concert, singing old folk songs from home. Throughout the performance Ada and Hettie recount the events that led up to the disaster and the moments that have brought them to this; the last show they will ever perform. Can they truly leave behind their dark past in order build a new future for themselves?

The music for this piece is co-written by Geoffrey Smith of the Saskatoon band Gunner and Smith. Funding for this collaboration was made possible by support from the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
