  • Based on oral histories of residents, industry reps, activists, scientists, environmentalists, the media, and more from Rubbertown and the surrounding neighborhoods, Prevailing Winds tells the stories of Louisville's "Chemical Corridor", in a multi-faceted exploration of the complex interrelationships in this part of our community.

    This play will be LFL's 10th collaboratively created piece, and we have been researching and devising this project throughout the past year and a half. Co-Artistic Director Shannon Woolley Allison says, “the opportunity to tell a story about our hometown is very exciting, and it is the first time we have done so in fourteen years of creating original work.”

    Prevailing Winds is LFL's contribution to the ACA YES! Fest &emdash; A Year of Environment and Sustainability, a year-long celebration of the region's dynamic arts and cultural organizations united, exploring these important issues. As part of our company's commitment to community involvement and partnerships, this production is co-sponsored by Louisville Repertory Company. LFL has received partial funding from Alternate ROOTS, Louisville Metro Council, the Arts and Cultural Attractions (ACA) Network of GLI, and the Kentucky Foundation for Women in support of the research, devising, and production phases of our tenth original work.
