‘Dark Corners’ to stage at Rickman Store

The popular play, “The Prince of Dark Corners,” by local writer and storyteller Gary Carden will be performed at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 31, at the historic Rickman Store in Macon County’s Cowee Valley.

The play centers on the life and times of the Carolina outlaw, Major Lewis Redmond, and has been performed widely in North Carolina and South Carolina over the past several years.

Seating is limited to 60. Tickets are $15 and can be obtained at the Franklin Chamber of Commerce and at the Rickman Store on Fridays and Saturdays. All proceeds will go to support the preservation and maintenance of the Rickman Store.

Filled with wit, humor, and pathos that pays homage to the eternal image of the true American folk hero, the play has been lauded as an entertaining glimpse into the life of one of the Carolina’s most colorful characters.

The T.M.Rickman Store is located seven miles north of Franklin by Hwy. NC 28 on Cowee Creek Road next to Cowee Elementary School.
