Who says the banjo can't be beautiful? Let's defy some stereotypes and see what results: an evening of music powered by the 5-string instrument that lives at the heart of American tunes, with a cappella and symphonic variations on the side.

Lisa Q Mount, regularly seen in the fall with the Lilies of the Valley and in the summer with her semi-eponymous variety show Auntie Q and her Wayward Girls, will hang on to center stage for dear life this spring. She'll be joined by beloved local musicians for a night that celebrates 20 years of songs about this place, and quite a few other places too.

You are cordially invited to attend what's sure to be an unforgettable event.

The Yellow Wallpaper & A Tell-Tale Heart

OCT 12 & 13, 7:30pm; OCT 14, 4:00pm
OCT 19 & 20, 7:30pm; OCT 21, 4:00pm in the Center Theater

Essence to Crux brings us The Yellow Wallpaper & A Tell-Tale Heart, double FEAR-ture plays featuring Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Edgar Allen Poe short story adaptations for theatre by director, Kallie Robinson.

"The Tell-Tale Heart" is a short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1843. It is relayed by an unnamed narrator who endeavors to convince the reader of his sanity while simultaneously describing a murder he committed. The victim was an old man with a filmy "vulture-eye", as the narrator calls it. The narrator emphasizes the careful calculation of the murder, and he hides the body by dismembering it in the bathtub, and hiding it under the floorboards. Ultimately, the narrator's feelings of guilt, or a mental disturbance, result in him hearing a thumping sound, which he interprets as the dead man's beating heart.

"The Yellow Wallpaper" (original title: "The Yellow Wall-paper. A Story") is a 6,000-word short story by American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, first published in January 1892 in "The New England Magazine". It is regarded as an important early work of American feminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women's health, both physical and mental. The story depicts the effect of understimulation on the narrator's mental health and her descent into psychosis. With nothing to stimulate her, she becomes obsessed by the pattern and color of the wallpaper.


Tickets: $13 Members, $15 Non Members, $8 Students.

Roxie Watson is a four-piece string band from Atlanta, Georgia that blends gorgeous vocal harmonies and stellar songs into live performances that will just as soon make you laugh as shed a tear. Their music combines elements of old country, rock-a-billy, bluegrass, gospel, and even a little touch of classic rock 'n roll.

Lisa Love of Georgia Music Magazine and the Georgia Music Foundation describes the band by saying, "When you have a group of women who are natural story-tellers, who sooth their aggressive musical chops with beautiful harmonies, temper their rock-n-roll sensibilities with an understanding of Appalachian tradition, and come off as a little bit Keith Richards, a little bit Bill Monroe, you get Roxie Watson."


Tickets $15 Members, $18 Non Members, $10 Child (16 and under).
