Description

It’s 1937, and the Kansas dust swirls as far as the eye can see. Eleven-year-old Jack and his family struggle to survive the Dust Bowl. With no rain clouds on the horizon, the future is grim. Bullied, not big enough to work, and a disappointment to his father, Jack feels useless in the face of hardship — until he discovers a sinister figure with a face like a thunderstorm. Is it just “dust dementia?” Or has he found a way to pull the town out of desperation? Both tall tale and thrilling historical fiction, The Storm in the Barn — with original music by Portland band Black Prairie — captures the spare, muted, ethereal mood of the award-winning graphic novel.

Please note:

The Storm in the Barn is recommended for ages 10 and up due to abstract staging and some dramatic scenes that may be too intense for younger audiences.
