A new program being offered during the season is The Mississippi Plays Series as part of The Eudora Welty New Plays Series. Staged readings of eight contemporary plays about Mississippi, or written by Mississippians, will be presented throughout the season.
In an effort to make sure we are serving all of our audiences, we will begin a new program call The Mississippi Plays, to present professionally staged readings of newer plays during the season that touch on Mississippi’s history and the history of the civil rights struggle.
I am excited to being the Mississippi Plays Series. I think it is an excellent opportunity to focus on Mississippi as we celebrate the state’s 200 year bicentennial and look forward to the opening of the state’s new Mississippi History Museum and the Civil Rights Museum.
