A brand-new play by Clark A. Cruikshank from the book by historian Gregg Andrews, based on actual events from Hannibal history.  Insane Sisters chronicles the epic legal battle waged by sisters Mollie Heinbach and Feemie Koller against the combined forces of corporate America and community leaders to control their own destiny.  In 1910, Heinbach inherited a tract of land from her husband Sam that was the preferred townsite for what would become the town of Ilasco on Hannibal's southern border.  Home to almost 2,000 Eastern European immigrants recruited to work in the new Atlas Cement plant, the area lacked even the most basic of services.  When community leaders sought to overturn the will and seize control of the tract, the sisters embarked on a 10-year journey to regain ownership.  Ultimately, it led to the court appointing guardians over the affairs of the sisters as they lost everything, including their freedom.  This sometimes funny and ultimately tragic story is presented through the eyes of Hannibal's iconic "Story-keeper" Mark Twain in a clever new production at Bluff City Theater.  Professional Theater in an Intimate Setting.  9 performances-just 90 seats per performance.
