Escanaba in da Moonlight

November 8-18, 2018

Family patriarch Albert Soady reunites with his two sons, Reuben and Remnar, at their Michigan Upper Peninsula family deer camp, joined by their zany friend, Jimmer (who has never been quite the same since being abducted by a UFO) for a spell of bagging bucks, playing cards, and drinking sweet sap whiskey. Thirty-five-year-old Reuben holds the infamous reputation as the oldest Soady in history never to bag a buck (earning the nickname of “Da Buckless Yooper”). This hunting-story-to-beat-all-hunting-stories spins a tale of humor, horror, and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.
