Bring It On! – September 16, 2013

Play

William Hosea and Leila Randle welcome director Tom Evans, and actresses Nora Leahy and Gladys DeVane from the play “Grace and Glorie”.

PART ONE
“Grace and Glorie” is an upbeat and life-affirming COMEDY! Grace Stiles is a 90 year old, terminally ill cancer patient who lives alone in a small, somewhat primitive cottage in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.   She is a strong willed, cantankerous, and very proud woman.
Glorie is a hospice volunteer.  She is a Harvard MBA, a successful New York attorney, and a recent transplant to this rural community.  Cantankerous Grace and sophisticated Glorie create the sure recipe for a clash of cultures.

The play is the season opener at the Brown County Playhouse. The show run begins October 2nd through the 19th.  Joining William and Leila tonight to share their insights “behind the curtain” of this stage project is director Tom Evans, and actresses Nora Leahy (Grace) and Gladys DeVane (Glorie).

Bring It On! – August 19, 2013

Bev Smith and Liz Mitchell welcome Terry James, the great-great grandson of Ervin James, the founder of Jamestown, South Carolina.

PART ONE
The African American community of Jamestown, South Carolina has its origins in a 105-acre tract bought in 1870 by former slave Ervin James (1815-1872). James, who was determined to own his own farm instead of being dependent on sharecropping or tenant farming, bought the tract that was later divided into individual farms, by his five sons and a son-in-law.

Through the years, the James descendants have hosted reunions that, at times, have averaged 325 attendees. Recently, they sought to engage a wider community to attend these gatherings. As a result, the reunion theme has changed to “Celebrate Jamestown.”

Joining Bev and Liz by phone to talk about these family gatherings and the legacy of Ervin James is Terry James, his great-great grandson.
