The State of the South

Posted on: June 25th, 2018

MMofA in partnership with Mobile United welcomes Alabama Shakespeare Festival for an exciting workshop focusing on how Southern storytelling is changing.

About The State of the South

We are a group of creatives—actors, directors, teachers, playwrights—looking to define what it means to be Southern in today’s world. We want to be challenged in how we think about our culture and society.

Five of the region’s most compelling creatives will join us for this workshop:

Rick Dildine – Director
Donnetta Lavinia Grays – Playwright
David Less Nelson – Playwright
Addae Moon – Playwright
Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder – Playwright

It starts with a story—your story. Join the dialogue, tune in to the conversation, and rewrite the assumptions of the South. Leave knowing more about the folks in your community.

Through one-on-one interviews, group story circles, and town halls, the State of the South creative team seeks to answer:
Who is the South?
What is the South?
Where is the South?

Tell us your story. Share your definition of the South.
This free, one-hour discussion is hosted in a safe, inclusive space. People from all walks of life and of all shapes, sizes, colors, and capabilities are welcome.

While the conversation thrives on participation, all activities and discussions are optional. Wear comfortable attire and feel free to bring a notebook and/or non-alcoholic beverages.

Arrive early (5:45 p.m.) and enjoy a pre-talk reception. Wine will be available.
