Senior Project...

Cheryl Baudoin Senior in Communication

LSSU senior communication major Cheryl Baudoin, director of the play, based her adaptation on Diane Gilliam Fisher's book of the same name. Kettle Bottom is a look into lives of workers and families in the coal camps of 1920-21 West Virginia with an emphasis on the miners' strike in Mingo County and the Matewan Massacre. Baudoinís adaptation of Fisher's book uses the perspective of the women and children and one lone miner to depict the harsh and sad reality of the company coal camps.
