Ezell: Ballad of a Land Man is an environmental, cultural, and spiritual parable devised and performed from the perspective of a rural white working class man. The parable derives from living in the foothills of Appalachia, one man among many seeking to make sense of the time, place, and condition in which we live. In the story, Ezell’s choices, traumas, ancestors, and more intersect with themes of domination and resilience as he seeks to take advantage of an anticipated fracking boom and the opportunity to reconnect with the people and land of his raising.
