A fable filled with the richness, songs and superstitions of the American Smoky Mountains. A play by Howard Richardson and William Berney, "Dark of the Moon" tells the story of John, a witch boy driven by his love for Barbara Allen, a human girl. Eager to build a life with Barbara, John strikes a bargain with the dark forces of his world to become human and attempts to live among mortals - something he can never truly do, being irrevocably tied the shadows of his origins. Features many well-known songs, including "Down in the Valley", "Hard ain't it Hard", "Old Time Religion" and the haunting and poetic "Ballad of Barbara Allen."
