The Kentucky Cycle

The Kentucky Cycle artwork

March  2–7, 2017


Spanning two centuries, from 1775 to 1975, this mesmerizing epic is the story of three families — Black, White and Native American — whose lives are irrevocably intertwined. The Kentucky Cycle is a compelling and unsentimental look at the men and women who founded this country to carve out a better place for themselves and their families in an often brutal, unpredictable world.
