All The King's Men at 5 different locations

 Robert Penn Warren's play, All The King's Men, will be presented at 5 different locations in the first weeks of November.  His 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel All the King's Men is one of the undisputed classics of American literature. Fifty years after the novel's publication, Warren's characters still stand as powerful representations of the moral dilemmas faced by individuals in positions of power.

Loosely based on the life of Huey P. Long, the Governor of Louisiana, it is set in the 1930s, yet it could be happening today; it speaks to the tangled politics of the American South, yet it bears echoes of political tragedies from Julius Caesar to Hurricane Katrina and beyond.

Jim Leggett directs this production which features the following performers:  Tim Landry, Anthony LeCroix, Phil Tapley, Keith Ulrich, Jerry Havens, Bradley L. Smith, Catherine Eppler, Theresa Louviere,
Michael Dalme, Jim Weinzettle, Kerry Lloyd, Wanda Schenk, Jackson Sleet, Kathleen Pharis, Paul Barbee, Stu Riggar, and Belle Rollins.

Performances will be held on November 6 at 3:00pm at the Southern Forest Heritage Museum in Longleaf - $15 Tickets include Supper on the grounds.  The next performance takes place at the Tioga Heritage Park and Museum on November 7 at 3:00 in the afternoon.  Later that week on Thursday November 11 a performance will take place at the Alexandria Museum of Art on the 3rd floor then on November 12 at Pineville Kees Park Community Center. Tickets for each of those events are just $5. 

The final performance will be on November 14 at 5:30 pm at the Westside Library. Dinner will be served as part of the Soiree in the Stacks, an annual Friends of the Library function. Tickets are $30.
