A teen (“Wild Bill”) & his larger-than-life father (“Quebec Bill”) set out to save the family farm by running Canadian whiskey in Prohibition Era Vermont. On an epic journey through the wilderness, Bill and his father encounter a cast of wild characters—and live out magical escapades as they carve their way into legend. LNT’s production is the first time any Mosher novel has been adapted for the stage
