The play was written by Dr. J. D. Reeder, who also is the director. It has 50 characters portrayed by 36 actors from Rowan and other counties.
The feud, also known as the Rowan County War, occurred during the period of 1884-1887 and led directly to the founding of a school in 1887 that evolved into Morehead State University.
The two-hour play is being presented in conjunction with the end of MSU’s 125th anniversary.
The Kentucky Center for Traditional Music will offer live music throughout the production.
