Voices of the South Theatre Company presents a stage adaptation of two works by Eudora Welty: her short story 'Why I Live at the P. O.' and a portion of her memoir, 'One Writer's Beginnings.'
'Why I Live at the P.O.' is a beloved Eudora Welty tale, with her wit, whimsy, and extraordinary ear for Southern banter all evident. Peppered with wonderfully eccentric characters, this comedic short story follows the trials and tribulations of Sister as she recounts her madcap quest for liberation from her family.
'One Writer’s Beginnings' is Welty's much-praised memoir, which she wrote later in life. The first chapter, entitled 'Listening,' takes a lyrical look into the author's childhood, exploring memory, family, and how a lifelong love of words led to her career.
