Sometimes It’s Dirt, Sometimes It’s Bones by Ryan King, April 7th, 7pm
Granny Vipperman just passed away at age 117. She lies in a coffin downstairs. Lawmen are coming to repossess the house, but Shade isn’t having it. She’s gotten rid of one, but they just keep coming. When her long lost sister comes back just to pay her respects, she ends up getting pulled into the bloody story. Shotguns are involved.
