A Spot On the Hill Returns for Fall 2015

A Spot on the Hill, the original, research-based play by Anne G’Fellers-Mason, returns to the Old Jonesborough Cemetery this October.  The show premiered last fall to sold-out performances, and this season’s production will feature a number of changes, including new stories, live music, and a stationary location inside the cemetery. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs to sit on. Come and listen to real stories of real lives among real tombstones.
