Workshop Reading | Seven Cousins for a Horse

October 23, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Girl in Red Dress with Cat and Dog by Ammi Phillips

Seven Cousins for a Horse is a new play by Tammy Ryan, commissioned by Thrown Stone with underwriting by the Daniel E. Offutt III Charitable Trust. It tells the story of Ammi Phillips, the most prolific folk artist in American History, returning to his home town of Colebrook, Connecticut in the wake of a personal tragedy. It is 1848, a time of great change. The Seneca Falls Convention is about to upend American politics, chattel slavery has finally ended in Connecticut, and there is already talk of a war between the states. But Ammi has work to do. He must capture the likenesses of his cousins, the Kinney family. All they can offer in payment is a strong horse, but that may be just the thing he needs to reset his itinerant career — and outrun his grief.
