The School of Theatre & Dance is excited to announce a special guest artist residency and workshop performance with actress, singer and Tony Award nominee Sally Mayes.
Growing up in East Texas gave Mayes many things a love for music of all kinds, a high tolerance for extremely spicy and an appreciation for all things odd and quirky. Most of all, it gave her a bone-deep love for a people that are frequently caricatured but not often understood, and a longing to tell their stories in all of their complicated messiness.
Described as a memory play with music, Contradiction of the Southern Soul tells the story of an actress returning to her East Texas hometown in the wake of a family tragedy to make peace with the past and accept the future.
All ticket sales to this special workshop performance directly support School of Theatre & Dance scholarships.
