Knoxville - 2020 - Regional (US)


Based on James Agee's autobiographical Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Death in the Family, the story begins as James Agee struggles to write his greatest novel - about the event that touched his young life, and the effect it had on his mother, his town and his own future. A powerful illumination of the forces that shape who we are, KNOXVILLE is a universal coming-of-age story about family, faith and love-and about the boy who will grow up to write it. With a sweeping musical score and an extraordinary creative team and cast, this world premiere is a must-see event.
