IU Southeast theatre lecturer has play selected for Appalachian Festival

21st June 2012

NEW ALBANY, IN, (June 21, 2012) – An Indiana University Southeast theatre lecturer will debut a play at the Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights in July.

Thirsting by the River Gilgamesh, a play by Ramona Morris, an IU Southeast adjunct lecturer in theatre, was one of six plays selected by Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Va., for the festival.

The annual festival celebrates the richness of the Appalachian tradition by showcasing the stories of the region, both past and present, and the inspiration it provides the playwrights and writers who live there.

The Festival has gained national attention by developing a process that has resulted in plays being produced not only on one of Barter’s two stages, but in regional theatres throughout the country.
