Signature Series: Many-Storied House - Falcon Theatre Production - Free Tickets Required

Registration not required

Friday, January 15, 2016

7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Newport Branch

Description

Falcon Theatre brings to the stage their adaptation of Many-Storied House, a collection of poems written by Kentucky author and poet laureate George Ella Lyon. The production will provide a glimpse into the sixty-eight-year long story of the author's childhood home, beginning with its construction by her grandfather and culminating with the poet's memories of bidding farewell to it after her mother's death. Moving, provocative, and heartfelt, Lyon's poetic excavations evoke more than just stock and stone; they explore the nature of memory and relationships, as well as the innermost architecture of love, family, and community. 

Raison D'Etre will perform a musical score for the production, which will include an original song by the playwright.  Many-Storied House is presented by special arrangement with author George Ella Lyon and University of Kentucky Press. The production will be directed by Clint Ibele. Video and/or audio recording of this performance by any means whatsoever are strictly prohibited. The Library wishes to thank Falcon Theatre and its members for the time and talent invested to bring the production to the Library and to our community.

Author George Ella Lyon will be available for a book signing following the presentation.  Joseph-Beth Booksellers will have copies of Many-Storied House and other titles by the author available for sale.

The library wishes to thank Joseph-Beth Booksellers Crestview Hills for partnering with us for this event.
