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.
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.
