I'm delighted that you enjoyed the play. Sounds lovely--I wish I could see it, and I think I'll try looking up a copy of the script.
Alchemists in Appalachia... it's no stranger than the folk art St. Francis sculpture I remember once seeing in a museum as a child--not expected from such a Protestant place.* Or the unique variety of crossbow, about which I've thought of writing a paper as there doesn't seem to be anything out there, but I'm not an Appalachian scholar and I have no idea where to begin with it.
My alternate historical Appalachia is, of course, Catholic, which rather eliminates the profusion of sects, but they've any number of local/heterodox saints to make up the difference, not to mention that most folk believe in hogboys, the Gentry, and so on, not without reason.
