West by God (Workshop Reading)


Aspiring author, Robert, is headed back to his hometown in West Virginia to visit his dying grandmother. Dr. Matheson addresses a lecture hall full of students at Georgetown University, discussing the decline of rural America. Agnes and Martha exist within the decline, and snap beans for canning to put away for leaner times. What unfolds is a funny, heartwarming, and gut-wrenchingly honest series of events that challenges and examines the meaning of home. West By God is a new semi-biographical play by West Virginia native and Keegan company member, Brandon McCoy.
