TSC's Southern Exposure Series Introduces the Tuesday Literary Salon

“If a story is in you, it has to come out.”
- William Faulkner

As part of its Southern Exposure Series, which features new and classic literature by Southern writers with Southern inspiration, Tennessee Shakespeare Company this summer introduces two very special Literary Salons hosted by Memphis’ newest Irish restaurant and by one of the city’s great patrons of the arts.

literary-salon-2014

Join us at the cooling hour of 6:00 pm for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, live music, and some of the best words ever written.  Elegant, intimate, and cool as a mint julep in shaved ice.  

Our first Salon on June 10, Of Ireland Born, was a huge, fun, sold-out hit at downtown’s Brass Door restaurant with Irish stage and screen star Bosco Hogan and endless pints of Guinness. We are already planning our return!

 

Don’t miss our next Salon:

Mark Twain at Twilight

starring Pete Pranica (television play-by-play man for the Memphis Grizzlies)

and live ragtime music on the grand piano by Steven DiBlasi

Tuesday, July 22 6:00-8:00 pm

Hosted by Mr. Milton T. Schaeffer in his Germantown residence

The mighty humorist of the Mississippi wrote the reconstructing South into existence for much of America with his novels, short stories, and his live stand-up routine.  Hear first-hand Mr. Twain's remarkable take on life during a remarkable period in the history of our country.  With wit, honesty, and infinite charm, Mr. Twain will with soothe and delight!  

Your $55 ticket buys you light appetizers, champagne, wine, live music, our star of the evening, and literature beyond compare.  Seating is extremely limited.  Tickets are now on sale while they last.  Program subject to change.

To purchase tickets today, call the TSC Box Office at 901-759-0604 or purchase online.

Highlights of TSC's 2013-14 Season

Annual Report | July 2014

You helped make our Sixth Season one of our most successful and far-reaching years yet.

The season began in 2013 with our municipal government eliminating all of TSC's education funding for our community and then letting us know our office lease would not be renewed.

But take a look at what you helped us accomplish after that through June 2014...
