A lover’s triangle, one of the nation’s first highly publicized crimes of passion, an unsolved mystery and an internationally known ballad – Tom Dooley – A Wilkes County Legend removes the veil of mystery and reveals the story made famous by The Kingston Trio’s ballad.
When one of Tom Dula’s (pronounced Dooley), love interests, Laura Foster, is found murdered, the community of Elkville is rocked by the discovery. Accusations begin to fly and soon the names on most people’s lips are Tom Dooley, Anne Melton and Perline Foster. As the rumors heat up, Tom flees Elkville, headed for Tennessee. Meanwhile, Anne Melton and Perline Foster are arrested after a physical altercation where each accuses the other of the murder. The woman who witnessed this altercation comes forward and Anne and Perline are both arrested. Perline is released from jail after turning states evidence and a posse is formed to bring Tom Dooley back to stand trial for murder. With the help of Colonel James Grayson in Tennessee (made famous by the popular ballad) Tom Dooley is captured and brought back to Wilkes County to stand trial. Tom is found guilty and hanged for the crime, but many believe it was his married lover, Anne Melton that really killed Laura. The show allows the audience to gather the facts and be the judge!
“Tom Dooley: A Wilkes County Legend” is a proud member of The National Institute of Outdoor Drama.
