An Original Production
Adapted from the works of Eudora Welty
By Voices of the South and Gloria Baxter
Performed by Jenny Odle Madden and Alice Rainey Berry
Directed by Gloria Baxter

At The Studio Theatre at Theatre Row
Thursday, July 28 – Sunday, August 7

Post-Show Talkbacks Announced:
July 29 and 30 Featuring Reilly Morse, President of The Mississippi Center for Justice

July 31 Hosted By Theater Journalist Zachary Stewart


Summoners Ensemble Theatre’s Eudora Welty – Mississippi Stories, adapted from the works of Eudora Welty by Voices of the South and Gloria Baxter, arrives in New York next week for eight performances only at the Studio Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues). Shows are Thursday, July 28 through Sunday, August 7 – Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:00pm, and Sundays at 3:00pm.

Eudora Welty – Mississippi Stories, features Welty’s short story “Why I Live at the P.O.” and her memoir“One Writer’s Beginnings,” and is performed by Jenny Odle Madden and Alice Rainey Berry, co-founders ofVoices of the Southa non-profit theatre company based in Memphis, Tennessee.

Patrons are invited to attend three newly announced post-show talkback discussions:

Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30
Reilly Morse, President and CEO of the Mississippi Center for Justice, will briefly address the audience about MCJ’s ongoing work with Mississippi House Bill 1523.

The Mississippi Center for Justice, a nonprofit, public interest law firm committed to advancing racial and economic justice, was instrumental in obtaining the preliminary injunction against H.B. 1523, the so called “Religious Liberty Accommodations” Act, which was to take effect July 1. MJC is continuing its work to make certain that the bill, which allows for discrimination based on a person’s religious and moral beliefs, goes down in defeat upon any appeal.

Eudora Welty, a Mississippi writer, simply loved words. Although she did not regard herself as a “crusader,” much of her work subtly displays the social inequities of race and gender she saw around her. In honor of Welty’s home state, Summoners Ensemble is donating 10% of their gross sales from the run of Mississippi Stories to the Mississippi Center for Justice.

Sunday, July 31
Theater journalist Zachary Stewart will lead a panel discussion featuring Jenny Odle MaddenAlice Rainey Berry, and Gloria Baxter.

Each talkback will also be live-streamed on https://livestream.com/accounts/20545556.
