Come sit on the wide front porch with members of the Wells family in Southwest Virginia, as their Sunday afternoon conversation turns to tales of the supernatural. Despite warnings from Grandpa Archie Wells that God “don’t take too kindly” to letting the Devil and haints out on His Day, the stories persist. After all, Grandma Ida Wells will tell anybody who asks, the mountains know things and have secrets that few living beings can ever see or hear. Those who do, come away changed forever – if they come back at all. In this original work, Haint So explores the rich tradition of folklore, superstition and the mystical spirits of the dark mountains in Virginia.
