  1. Rita Quillen and Other Poets (May 20)

     Sun, May 20th - VA Highlands  Family & Education, Arts & Culture, Music, Church & Ministry 0
    Meet Rita Quillen, one of the region's finest poets, who will lead the annual 'Celebration of Regional Poetry.' Her new volume, The Mad Farmer's Wife, is a response to a life lived on a mountain cattle farm in Southwest Virginia and also to a poetic persona created by noted Kentucky poet and essayist Wendell Berry over thirty years ago: the Mad Farmer. In a world increasingly detached from the land that supplies our all our essential resources, Quillen's poetry tries to help us understand the complexity and challenge of living a rural life in today's economy and the dark life-and -death struggles that are a routine part of farm living. She will be joined at this event by other poets from the Appalachian Center for Poets and Writers. Sponsored by Washington County Friends of the Library.

     Thu, May 31st - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Music 0
    By Robert Harling A heart-warming portrait of friendship and love is the basis for this much-loved show. There isn’t a bond quite like the one between southern women in a beauty shop. In a small southern town, six women gather in Truvy’s Beauty Salon to share gossip, laughter, recipes and beauty secrets, but they end up sharing so much more. Humor and heartbreak shine through this performance as the women experience some of the most significant days of their lives together. The true power of friendship shows through the women's underlying strength, which makes these characters genuinely touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in the good times and bad.

    A Barter Audience Favorite By Ross Carter It’s l’amour, y’all! Country music meets opera in the most unlikely, unbelievable and undoubtedly the most popular play to ever come through Barter’s Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights. A struggling opera singer has a dream: to sing the lead in Carmen. Her agent thinks she’s found the answer! But she finds herself singing at a state fair with a country music band called the Car Men —agents clash, people panic, and the singers erupt at the worst of possible moments in one of the funniest musicals you will ever experience.
