WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Why I Live at the P.O." and "One Writer's Beginnings." Adapted from the works of Eudora Welty by Voices of the South Theatre Company and Gloria Baxter.
"Why I Live at the P.O." is among the best loved of Eudora Welty's acclaimed short stories. Peppered with wonderfully eccentric characters, this comic short story follows follows the trials and tribulations of Sister as she recounts her mad-capped quest for liberation from her family.
"One Writer's Beginnings" is Eudora 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 life-long love of words led her towards a writer's life.
