For the first time, fans of Howard Frank Mosher can see the late Vermont author’s work come to life onstage. Lost Nation Theater founder and resident playwright Kim Allen Bent harnessed his love for Mosher’s 1977 debut novel, Disappearances, and adapted it for the stage. LNT performers act out the larger-than-life story of a man named Québec Bill and his teenage son, Wild Bill, who run Canadian whiskey in Prohibition-era Vermont and meet a few colorful characters along the way. Describing the tall tale in a press release, Bent says, “Its characters are totally authentic old-time Vermonters, raised to mythic dimensions by [Mosher’s] loving and insightful imagination.”
