Somewhere in the middle of Columbia County, New York, there's a town named Hollowville, and somewhere in the middle of the town there's a dusty and forgotten hotel. The residents of the hotel, played by a talented ensemble cast, speak of bygone eras as they wait for the mysterious Big Thunder Day. Part séance and part ghost story, Mary Jane Hansen's novel is a challenging and atmospheric hymn to America that touches on images as diverse as Rip Van Winkle and the atom bomb. As narrator, iconic character actor Bruce Dern adds his well-known droll delivery. This poetic story about release and regeneration proves why reader's theater is often called the theater of the mind.
