Southern DisComfort by Elisabeth Gray

Fresh from an Off-Broadway run in New York City, esteemed actor Elisabeth Gray brings her one-woman show to Oxford for one evening only on Friday, 5th July.

Following a tour of various venues in the United States, Southern DisComfort comes to Princess Margaret Memorial Garden at the Rothermere American Institute.

“The talented writer and actress Elisabeth Gray” (The New Yorker) and director Daniel Zimbler bring to life a collection of true tall tales of contemporary American Southerners -- from a one-armed boy selling rifles at a gun show, to a former beauty queen violently obsessed with facial symmetry. Flannery O’Connor meets O’Henry in this tragicomic depiction of the American South today... It’s Triple Distilled Southern Gothic!

Tickets are £15 for adults; £12 for students, including wine. Wine will be served from 5.30.

To reserve tickets, please email [masked].

Elisabeth Gray distinguished herself as a performer in Oxford productions between 2002-05. Since then she has written and performed the award-winning Wish I Had a Sylvia Plath at the Edinburgh Fringe, in Oxford, New York City, and elsewhere.

    Very pleasant event. Maudlin but thought provoking. So sorry I did not manage to meet up as planned prior to event but complete nightmare getting there starting with a flat tyre - and that was only the start... Hope the other ladies managed to connect.

      I'd be up for that, finish work at 5pm, and it's quite close by I think :).

    Kathleen M and I will be attending, and we would hope to see many of you at this event. My former boss and ex-wife (two different people) saw the show in Carmel, California, and were deeply impressed.

      Do members need to make their own Meetup arrangements on the night, David?
