THE PICHER PROJECT

is a new musical that explores the rise and destruction of the now-abandoned mining town of Picher, Oklahoma.

Once the world's largest producer of lead and zinc, Picher became the EPA’s #1 Superfund site, deeming it the most toxic place in America. In 2008, a devastating tornado destroyed most of what was left and, as a result, Picher was officially dissolved in 2013- making it a ghost town. The Picher Project, based on interviews and stories from former citizens, covers the town’s 100-year history- through town politics, involvement with the native Quapaw tribe, environmentally caused illnesses, and, eventually, the earth crumbling underneath their feet.
