The Southern Writers’ Theatre presents Mrs. John Marsh (a.k.a. Margaret Mitchell)

75 years ago Gone With the Wind was published. Now I can believe it if you haven’t read the book, but if you haven’t seen the movie then I’m sorry, but we can’t be friends.

That said, the Southern Writers’ Theatre has decided to celebrate author Margaret Mitchell this Thursday by presenting a free performance of “Mrs. John Marsh,” a one-woman play about her life at the Williamson County Public Library.

Here’s the event description, for your reading pleasure:

Mitchell’s writing of Gone With the Wind was built on the many aspects of her life as a native southerner, a woman, a journalist, and on her Irish ancestors. “Mrs. John Marsh,” written by Atlanta playwright Melita Easters and played by Kandace Christian, a local actor, brings to life a span of 90 years of the history, as well as the three wars that those years enveloped, of the nation in which we dwell. The production will be directed by Dr. Jamie Cutler, actor, academician, playwright, and Grammy-nominated song writer.

There you go, a great, way to learn something on St. Patrick’s day. Enjoy. And seriously, watch Gone With the Wind so we can continue to be friends.
