METEORITE _ DOORSTOP (1) - Annie Levy.png

Advance Tickets: $7

Box Office Tickets: $10


Sylacauga, AL: On November 30th, 1954, Ann Hodges, a rural woman from an insulated world, is napping on her couch. Suddenly, something crashes through her roof and hits her just below her stomach: A meteorite. This moment of impact makes Ann the only person to ever be struck by a meteorite and live to tell the tale.

The virtually unknown story of what happened to Ann Hodges and her meteorite (the media circus, the legal battles for ownership, the costs of sudden and unwanted fame) are explored in this contemporary take on a local, global and celestial tragedy of improbable cataclysms and their sudden insignificance.
