WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Gifted with unnatural strength, Sam Jr. wants to accomplish great things, but his reverend father seeks to shelter him from the wide world. When a Prohibition agent comes digging for secrets in the town of Goode, Sam and his father get caught up in a tangled mission of truth, where lies get revealed at great cost.
From the creators of Kingdom Undone and 'Til Death: A Marriage Musical, Sam's Son is a Prohibition-era Americana musical loosely inspired by the biblical story of Samson.
St. Paul's tainted bootlegging history is not lost on the authors. Their unique performance venue is Art House North, a 100-plus-year-old church in the West 7th neighborhood of St. Paul, and home to their theater company, Bucket Brigade. The show will take place on both levels of the church, the upper level holding much of the action, while the downstairs lobby is transformed into a speakeasy serving German pretzels and draft root beer.
