Falcon Theatre presents Many-Storied House, a collection of poems written by Kentucky author and poet laureate George Ella Lyon. The production will provide a glimpse into the sixty-eight-year long story of the author’s childhood home, beginning with its construction by her grandfather and culminating with the poet’s memories of bidding farewell to it after her mother’s death. Moving, provocative, and heartfelt, Lyon’s poetic excavations evoke more than just stock and stone; they explore the nature of memory and relationships, as well as the innermost architecture of love, family, and community.
Raison D’Etre will perform a musical score for the production, which will include an original song by the playwright. Many-Storied House is presented by special arrangement with author George Ella Lyon and University of Kentucky Press.
Author George Ella Lyon will be available for a book signing following the presentation. Joseph-Beth Booksellers will have copies of Many-Storied House and other titles by the author available for sale.
An ASL interpreter will be present to sign at this event.
