Welty Display


Lots of Welty memoribilia was on display in the Hewes Room at New Stage.


Ms. Welty was a big fan of theater and was always a supporter of New Stage and the arts in general. This season's performance of The Ponder Heart was not the first at New Stage. Adaptations of some of her other works have also been performed here - most notably The Robber Bridegroom. Let's hope the Welty traditon continues!

une belle idée d'exposition. Je ne connaissais pas Ms Welty

Olivier - I am surprised you have never heard of Eudora Welty. She is a Pulizter Prize winning author and has a large French following. In any case, maybe this is a chance for you to get to know her work!

Theater as an art form was predicted to die in this age of electronically transmitted sensations. Fortunately, they were wrong. It is very much alive and kicking.
