Take Her to See the Maco Lights


UPERWOLF presents the NY Premiere of Take her to See the Maco Lights, a play by Bekah Brunstetter, as a theater, installation, and musical performance.

About Maco Lights- Tobacco land, North Carolina:  A boy with a guitar, trapped in time, lurks near the abandoned railway tracks, waiting for a glimpse of an infamous ghost train- the legend of the Maco Lights.  50 years earlier, the white son of a tobacco magnate woos Mattie, his father’s beautiful young black receptionist.  A play about money and power, love and ghosts, with music.   In keeping with The Invisible Dog’s mission to bring interdisciplinary and collaborative art to the community, SUPERWOLF will create a uniquely interactive, intimate theatrical event.  Bespoke lighting instruments and seating created by local artists will serve as both scenic elements and original art available for purchase; post-show, each night will transition into a concert and celebration, featuring a variety of musical guests.
