Description:
Who does a story really belong to? In the world premiere production of The Legacy of Amelia Aldean, playwright Laurie Jones explores questions of gender equality and the right to tell the story of someone’s life. The Legacy of Amelia Aldean has all the quintessential elements of a ghost story – it’s creepy and strange, full of special effects and scares, but, at its heart, it’s a story about love, secrets and the true meaning of success and redemption. This play resides in two worlds – the modern day world of soon-to-be-married James and Neil, a pair of writers who love each other, but are at odds in many ways, and Amelia’s 1916 existence, a world in which she cannot publish her writing under her own name. When James invites Amelia’s ghost to invade his life, as a way of finding creative inspiration, he gets much more than he bargained for. Should he leave the past in the past, or should he intervene? Synopsis: James, a one-note-wonder novelist, in the throes of a long dry spell, has moved into the house of dead writer Amelia Aldean. His fiancé, Neil, is there to see him off before his sixth month stint in this old, Southern house. James is hoping to find inspiration by summoning Amelia’s ghost to “invade his life,” desperate to find the story that will turn his own life around. THE LEGACY OF AMELIA ALDEAN runs September 27th -October 20th at The Magnetic Theatre, located at 375 Depot Street in the River Arts District. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $10 for students. All tickets are subject to a $3 ticketing fee.

Lucas Hnath’s Tony-nominated A Doll’s House, Part 2 picks up where Ibsen’s groundbreaking play left off. Fifteen years ago, Nora left her husband, Torvald. In the years since, the two have had no contact. Nora has become a successful feminist writer, while Torvald continued to work at the bank and raised their children on his own. This play delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality and human rights. It is “an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll’s House as a sequel.” How much, in a century-plus, has life changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong?

**Please read carefully as details of this event have changed.** Doors at Jubilee will open at 11 AM for light refreshments and mingling. The event starts at 12 NOON. Malaprop's is delighted to partner with The Great Smokies Writing Program at UNC Asheville to bring Ann Patchett back to Asheville. Join us for a special midday event at Jubilee! Community Church in downtown Asheville to celebrate Patchett's newest book, The Dutch House. Each ticket comes with a signed copy of the book. **Any tickets purchased for October 30 are valid for October 26 or fully refundable if you cannot attend on the 26th.** ***Stay tuned for important details about the event and signing.*** ANN PATCHETT is the author of seven novels and three works of nonfiction. She is the winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award, England's Orange Prize, and the Book Sense Book of the Year, and was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World. Her work has been translated into more than thirty languages. She is the co-owner of Parnassus Books in Nashville, Tennessee, where she lives with her husband, Karl, and their dog, Sparky. THE DUTCH HOUSE "'Do you think it's possible to ever see the past as it actually was?' I asked my sister. We were sitting in her car, parked in front of the Dutch House in the broad daylight of early summer." At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves. The story is told by Cyril's son Danny, as he and his older sister, the brilliantly acerbic and self-assured Maeve, are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. It is this unshakable bond between them that both saves their lives and thwarts their futures. Set over the course of five decades, The Dutch House is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they're together. Throughout their lives they return to the well-worn story of what they've lost with humor and rage. But when at last they're forced to confront the people who left them behind, the relationship between an indulged brother and his ever-protective sister is finally tested. The Dutch House is the story of a paradise lost, a tour de force that digs deeply into questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, of how we want to see ourselves and of who we really are. Filled with suspense, you may read it quickly to find out what happens, but what happens to Danny and Maeve will stay with you for a very long time.

But of the more than 750,000 podcasts available through Apple’s podcasting app, fewer than 1 percent crack 1,000 listeners per episode, and most don’t reach 200. What will you do to stand out and succeed? In this fast-paced course, Blue Ridge Public Radio producer and veteran podcaster Matt Peiken will help you sort through your show concepts, recording and editing options for modest budgets, potential time and money traps, and the marketing of your proposed podcast.  This three-hour course is for everyone: from beginners who don’t know where to start to current podcasters who want to improve the quality of their shows. Class meets Sunday afternoon November 3, 2019, 2pm-5pm with a short break. Cost: $50 General Admission, $45 for current FWR Co-Working members.  Partial need-based scholarships are available for this workshop. To register by check instead of Eventbrite, mail your check and a valid email address to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting. Matt Peiken moved to Asheville in August 2017 to become the Arts & Culture Producer with Blue Ridge Public Radio. He's a career journalist—a former longtime staff arts and features writer with the St. Paul (MN) Pioneer Press and an arts reporter with the digital arm of WCPO-TV, in Cincinnati. He founded and managed a variety of online journalism efforts, including the video program 3-Minute Egg, the music-talk podcast Metal Brainiac, and the community op-ed page Opine Season. He also served as managing editor of the Walker Art Center’s magazine and as a longtime contributing writer to Modern Drummer Magazine.

Description:
The Mountain Political Action Committee must meet again. This time, they have to confront a small local Tea Party group…and some of the characters just might be related. Come enjoy a beer and humor based on self-deprecating references to Asheville, the county and even a surprise guest appearance from a local politician giving us an update on the Vance Monument. In an age of polarized divisiveness, can these two groups find common ground? Come to the Magnetic Theatre and find out. The Magnetic Theatre is thrilled to be producing this companion play to Mountain Political Action Committee, both written by local playwright Honor Moor. Audiences will be sure to relate to this local humor, even if they aren’t Asheville natives. Synopsis: The Mountain Political Action Committee has to meet again to protect Asheville - In the Nick of Time! This group of local native Democrats will have to take matters into their own hands in order to stop threats of facism. Per usual, their mountain, southern, un-orthodox ways of handling a tough situation is the only way to stop it from happening. Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the hilarity of the true south that is often hidden in plain sight in Asheville. Run, don't walk, and get your ticket for what is becoming a local favorite! In The Nick Of Time – Mountain Political Action Committee Meets Again runs November 1st-24th at The Magnetic Theatre, located at 375 Depot Street in the River Arts District. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $10 for students. All tickets are subject to a $3 ticketing fee.

Description:
Creative Nonfiction, particularly memoir, begins in a very personal, sacred and beautiful space. As we move deeper in the drafting process, we discover wonder and insight. Alas, as with everything in life, there's a downside. Writing Creative Nonfiction can lull us into a state of explaining or navel-gazing. We get caught up in our own research and self-discovery and forget the reader is there, waiting for us to talk to them, to thrill them even. Elements of Story are the same for Fiction and Creative Nonfiction, and in this 3-session workshop (Mondays 6:30pm-8:30pm), you will begin new work or revise current work to incorporate well-wrought characters, settings, conflicts, and atmospheres that will keep your readers turning the pages. We will look at excellent works of Creative Nonfiction: Wild by Cheryl Strayed, American Eden by Victoria Johnson, and Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward. These three represent the memoir, journalism, and essay within the Creative Nonfiction fields. We will also look at examples of short fiction from such works as Zadie Smith's "The Embassy of Cambodia," Kazuo Ishiguro's "Crooner," and Alice Munro's "Dimension," as well as other works. The instructor will provide handouts. Reading like writers, in 20-minute discovery sessions, we will identify narrative elements--dialogue, setting, voice, structure, gaps, time, etc.--used in both genres--and then in 10-minute creative sessions we will write our own applications of these tools and share our processes. This workshop will be energetic and inspiring, and it will provide you with instruments for keeping your writing, even in the drafting process, fresh and exciting. It may also open new pathways for storytelling, memory, and self-discovery. To register by check instead of through Eventbrite, mail your check to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806. You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting.  Cost: $180 General Admission, $162 for current FWR Co-Working members. Partial need-based scholarships are available for this workshop. Laura Hope-Gill holds an MFA from Warren Wilson College MFA Program for Writers and is a North Carolina Arts Fellow for Creative Nonfiction. She is the author of two architectural histories of Asheville (Grateful Steps, 2010, 2011) and one collection of poems (The Soul Tree, Grateful Steps 2008) for which she was named the poet laureate of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Parabola, Bellevue Review, Fugue, Cincinnati Review, North Carolina Literary Review, and other journals have published her essays, memoir, short stories, and poems. She currently directs the Thomas Wolfe Center for Narrative at Lenoir-Rhyne University's graduate campus in Asheville. Her work in narratology in healthcare opened her eyes to the value of the study of narrative in creative writing, and she is excited to present this approach in a live-action and high-creativity workshop for writers at all stages in their craft. She heads the Asheville Wordfest literary festival.

The Sublime Theater kicks off its second year of productions with Associate Artistic Director John Crutchfield's "My Crazy My Love," a domestic phantasmagoria with song and dance, with music by Holiday Childress, choreography by Artistic Associate Kristi DeVille, and direction by Producing Artistic Director Steven Samuels. The production plays Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 P.M., November 7-23, at The BeBe Theatre in downtown Asheville. In "My Crazy My Love," all the world's a stage and every family's a dramatis personae in which the roles are all miscast. Crutchfield says his latest play-with-music "tells the comic story of one family's failure to know itself. Only the impending death of the patriarch can offer some hope of eleventh hour self-recognition and redemption. Or not. Whatever." The Crutchfield-Samuels collaboration has been going on for 10 years now, and has resulted in such works as the award-winning "The Songs of Robert," "Ruth," "The Labyrinth," "Landscape with Missing Person," "Malverse," and, most recently, "TRNZ," with which they successfully launched The Sublime in November of last year. The show stars Kathy O'Connor and Samuels as a mismatched couple; Olivia Stuller, Lydia Congdon, and Emmaleigh Moriniti as three mismatched sisters; and Julian Vorus and Art Moore as mismatched friends. Rachel McCrain assistant directs. "It's a privilege and a delight to work on John's plays," Samuels says. I never know what to expect, except for rich characters, extraordinary language, great wit, and constant surprise. This time out, we get the additional pleasure of music composed by Holiday Childress, one of the finest singer-songwriters around. The music itself, in more styles than I can name, is as exciting and inventive as everything else about 'My Crazy My Love.' Not to be missed!" *** The Sublime Theater presents the world premiere of "My Crazy My Love," by John Crutchfield, with music by Holiday Childress, choreography by Kristi DeVille, and direction by Steven Samuels. Performances Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 PM, November 7-23, at The BeBe Theatre, 20 Commerce Street, in downtown Asheville, NC. All seats $15.

Description:
Come and share in the humor and heart that arises from this one-woman storytelling created and told by Kathy Ramirez, Mind-FULL: Stories of a Reluctant Meditator with host National Storyteller, Connie Regan-Blake. In this unique story Kathy explores her past need for any and all distractions and any excuse to keep moving, exercising or doing what was needed to simply stay busy. Yet in an effort to get out of her comfort zone, when a fellow colleague told her about a 10-day silent mediation retreat she attended, Kathy was intrigued. A few months later, while living in New Zealand, Kathy signed up for her first meditation course, with no talking, no electronics, no reading or writing materials permitted and, to her dismay, no exercise. What started out as a quest to complete a mind “boot camp” turned into a 7-year journey. Whether you meditate or not, this relatable story portrays the courage and capability we all have to pause and question the validity of our thoughts in order to create a healthier and happier view of ourselves and the world, even though we may encounter a little reluctance along the way. Tickets for Mind-FULL are $12 online or $15 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online at https://ambrosewest.com or Eventbrite. Parking is free and plentiful on the corner of Haywood Road and Swannanoa Avenue in West Asheville. Doors open at 4:30 p.m.
