(VIDEO) Before You See Korbel V, Here is a Brief Reminder of What Happened in Korbels I-IV

The month-long Mad River Festival kicks off tonight at Dell’Arte with the world premiere of Korbel V: The Secret, the fifth installment in the blue-collar Dugan family saga. (Get a feel for what kind of backwoods color you’ll be absorbing in the video above featuring local actor Michael Fields in the role of Jimmy Dugan.)

But in the event you somehow missed any part of Korbels I-IV (and since the shows were spaced out over a good number of years and only staged in Blue Lake, seems those odds are good, yeah?), one of the stars of the series, Joan Schirle, has provided a little video refresher looking at the Dugan family's tragicomic history.

Get caught up below.
