The Downtown Playhouse will help celebrate Founders Day weekend in Pocahontas by staging “Cheverie” for two days only, May 3 and 4.  The two-act play, written & directed by Kelly Grooms, reflects a dark event in history of Pocahontas.

“Cheverie” hearkens back to a vigilante hanging that occurred in the city in the early 20th Century.  It is set in the modern day and imagines a courtroom where G.A. Cheverie is able to face his accusers from beyond the grave and seek justice for his death.
