The Picher Project
Welcome to Picher, Oklahoma, the EPA’s #1 Superfund site, the most toxic place in America. Forced with the prospect of losing their homes, this once thriving mining town must confront its political divides, complicated history, and the mysterious illnesses plaguing its citizens in this poignant new musical inspired by real life events. Based on interviews, personal stories, and the often forgotten experience of the Quapaw Nation, and featuring a bluegrass and folk infused original score, THE PICHER PROJECT forces us to reckon with our past and take responsibility for our future.
