Sleep in Safety: The Legend of Octavia Hatcher

The Appalachian Center for the Arts presents Sleep in Safety: The Legend of Octavia Hatcher, October 22 through 31, 2020, in downtown Pikeville, Kentucky.

Since the early part of the 20th century, Octavia Hatcher’s monument has watched over the city of Pikeville from the cemetary on the hill. Octavia’s brief marriage to prominent Pikeville businessman James Hatcher ended suddenly when she suffered an unknown illness that resulted in her being buried alive.

This original, tragic story of her life and death is a chilling account which may explain why many say her spirit walks the graveyard to this day.

AUDIENCE ADVISORY Rated PG
