A staged reading of the critically-acclaimed one-man play, Pierce to the Soul, on Saturday, June 7 at 7:30pm. at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill in Putney. Tickets are $10 suggested donation, available at the door. (This event was rescheduled from its original Black History month February date due to weather.) Pierce to the Soul tells the story of Elijah Pierce, a barber, preacher and a folk artist of no small significance.

Says Mullins Lee, “What I wanted to capture about Pierce, the son of a former Mississippi slave who migrated north and settled in Columbus, though, was his “wholeness as a person.”
