TANGLED ROOTS is based on the memoir of award winning author Elizabeth Spencer entitled "Landscapes of the Heart".  Ms. Spencer was born and raised in a small rural town just a few miles east of the MIssissippi Delta. In her book she tells of growing up in her Southern hometown.  Many of the characters she remembers are brought to life in this delightful play which is filled with humor and original music.

Welcome to Hill Fire! 

Hill Fire is a folk life play produced semi-annually by the Montgomery County Arts Council in Winona, Mississippi.  It is based on the real stories of people who live in the South.  A new play is locally written each year from collected stories and written history and depicts the lives, history, and traditions of Southerners and their families.
