Elizabeth Gray's first work, I Wish I Had a Sylvia Plath, a one-woman review, premiered at the Cherry two years ago then went on to win Scotland's Edinburgh Festival's "Fringe First" award for Innovative and Outstanding New Writing. Her second work was chosen as a winner of the Cherry's Talk to Me "One-on-One" monologue playwriting competition, which played last weekend. She's currently commissioned by the Emily Dickinson International Society to write a play about the poet traveling in a time portal to the 20th century. But first, this weekend she performs excerpts from some of the best Southern writers (Gray is from North Carolina) in the canon: Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Mark Twain, John Kennedy Toole, Margaret Mitchell.
