Written by Susan Cooper with music by Jonathan Brielle, Foxfire is a glimpse into the lives of a family in Southern Appalachia. Annie Nations, an indomitable Appalachian widow of 79, lives on her mountain farm with the acerbic ghost of her husband Hector. Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort and by concern over her son Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away. Annie’s battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. This couple offers a staunchly affirmative tribute to country folk.
Foxfire is directed by Harolyn Sharpe. Cast includes Meganne Johnson as Annie, Brian Johnson as Dillard, Rich Nowell as Hector, Carrington Tate as Prince, Elizabeth Gerhardt as Holly and Ron Price as Doctor.
