A Reading of Elford Alley's In Search of the Amherst County Wildman at Panglossian Productions in Newport News, VA—Saturday 16 March 2013
The play chronicles the final adventure of one man's 40-year attempt to find Big Foot. Before the land where he grew up is flooded for a reservoir, Carl Earp engages the host of a reality monster-hunter TV show to document his last effort to prove to the world that "something" exists out there. On this quest, Carl confronts personal secrets that expose more than the legendary creature’s existence; how his obsession has affected those who care for him most.
Elford Alley is a regular contributor to the music blog Riffraf.net and has written for Cracked.com. He recently attended the Endstation Playwright's Initiative. Currently, Elford lives in Texas with his wife, Katy and daughter, Ruby.
