From the Dramatic
This drama is a spine-tingling tale of a boy and his worst
fears in the swamp—eventually overcome by Wiley himself. Set deep within the
mysterious Tombigbee Swamp, Wiley and the Hairy Man centers around a young
fatherless boy, his conjure-woman mother, his faithful dog, and the Hairy Man
who haunts Wiley's days and dreams. Through rhythm and rhyme, a chorus creates
the mystery of the swamp. The magic of this play is not fairy dust, it is
soil—the magic of survival, the magic of the earth and the mud of the swamp. In
an exciting duel of wits, Wiley learns to rely upon his own resources and
conquers two villains: the Hairy Man and his own fear.
