Tompkinsville has a running time of two hours, featuring a 15 minute intermission.
Tompkinsville features a cast of five actors (2F, 3 M) plus a singer and a guitar player.
Required stage crew is minimal and we travel with a stage manager (total touring number is 8).
Tompkinsville features original music naturalistically within its action, performed mainly by musicians to the side of the stage. Tompkinsville is not a musical, as characters do not sing or hear the music played (with the exception of songs sung by characters as they drink, etc).
Tompkinsville is written to play in theatres (both main stages and secondary halls) and also in unconventional spaces—community halls, fire halls, pubs, etc.
Tompkinsville is written for touring and requires little time for load-in, run-through, lighting and load-out.
Tompkinsville is meant for audiences of over 19 years of age, as some venues may serve alcohol throughout performances. It features strong language, in the authentic dialogue of the miners, that is not suitable for children.
