BackAlley Theatre’s “The Outsider” into Final Shows

BackAlley Theatre’s “The Outsider” into Final Shows

BackAlley Community Theatre is into the second week of our winter production, The Outsider. This comedy is an insightful, witty satire about modern American politics—funny, timely, and—dare we say—entirely possible. Ned Newley might be the worst candidate to ever run for office, unless the public is looking for...the worst candidate to ever run for office. This hit combines a sarcastic view of modern-day politics with a surprisingly simple, yet true, idea of what good politics can be and can do.

Books and Biscuits Club Discuss 'The Good Lord Bird"

Books and Biscuits Club Discuss ‘The Good Lord Bird”

Books and Biscuits Book Club met recently at the Cook-Hill Bed and Breakfast in historic Grand Cane. After an amazing lunch, Jerline Jackson led the group discussion on James McBride’s The Good Lord Bird, a National Book Award in Fiction winner (2013).

The Good Lord Bird is a recreation of the last years and days of the abolitionist John Brown told through the eyes of a young slave who accompanied Brown on his last campaign.

Henry Shackleford is a young slave living in the Kansas Territory in 1857, when the region is a battleground between anti- and pro-slavery forces. When John Brown arrives in the area, an argument between Brown and Henry’s master quickly turns violent. Henry is forced to leave town with Brown, who believes he’s a girl. John Brown nicknames him/her “Onion” because Henry ate Brown’s lucky onion! So Henry soon finds himself in a dress and most of the time it works for him because the Old Man (Brown) doesn’t believe in women fighting.
