November 4, 2016 | In Oklahoma in the 1930’s, “The Cyclone Line” was a name for the telephone when it was used to pass information on the all-important weather; the tornadoes, the elusive rain, and the devastating dust storms. Kat Eggleston has written many songs inspired by her father’s memories of the Oklahoma dustbowl, and the songs grew into a play with music. This video is an excerpt from the 2016 staging, with Kat Eggleston as herself and Seattle-based actor Brian Gunter as Al. Directed by Charlotte Tiencken.
