The Incredible Fox Sisters – Hardin-Simmons University

Hardin-Simmons University Theatre presents “The Incredible Fox Sisters” by Jaclyn Backhaus. Directed by Victoria Spangler in Van Ellis Theatre.

The Fox sisters have a dirty secret they’re ready to share. They’ve been talking to the town peddler, Mr. Splitfoot … who’s been murdered, dead and buried for five years. His dearly departed soul is haunting his old home in Hydesville, New York, where the girls now live. Don’t you believe them? This new play is based on the true story of Maggie and Kate Fox, two young New York girls who in the 1840s became international celebrities by convincing the world they were talking with ghosts. Their rapid rise to and fall from fame tells a darkly comedic coming-of-age story, pulling the girls into a twisted fate as perhaps the first victims of reality star culture.

Tickets are $10 general admission; $5 military, seniors and students; and free for HSU employees and students.
