Basement Light Productions & The Tank Presents:
TAKE ME DOWN TO THE LEVEE
By Riley Elton McCarthy
WHAT'S A GOOD CURSE?
AN ACT OF GOD, I RECKON.
Southern twins Wynona and Waylon have always had it rough. Against the backdrop of the North Carolinian bible belt, Wynona’s inherited their late father’s gun shop after a tragic accident took his life, and Waylon, the town pariah, can’t seem to shake the trauma of a year without their father. Then there’s the levee, which has also inexplicably gone dry. When the preacher’s son takes a fancy to Waylon, the town is stricken with more than just a religious reckoning… not when there are multiple inexplicable disappearances and deaths all tracing back to that levee. The fate of their small town rests in the hands of Wynona… or does it?
A new haunt that lurks between the Twilight Saga, Midnight Mass, and a good Stephen King novel, TAKE ME DOWN TO THE LEVEE is a journey through small-town queer politics, chosen families, and the bloodsuckers we fall for.
