"Why I Live at the P. O."

Stanford University drama lecturer Courtney Walsh presents the one-woman show in the recital hall. The Welty Foundation is the host.

Three notable actors from Stanford University will bring Eudora Welty stories to life through staged interpretations March 26-28 in Mississippi. Courtney Walsh will present Why I Live at the P. O.; Angela Farr Schiller will present A Worn Path; and Rush Rehm will enact Where Is the Voice Coming From? The performances will be introduced by Suzanne Marrs, Welty Foundation Scholar-in-Residence at Millsaps College. The Jackson performance will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, at Millsaps in the Recital Hall of the Gertrude C. Ford Academic Complex. Admission is free. Walsh is the granddaughter of AimeƩ Shands Walsh, one of Welty's childhood friends from Jackson who attended Columbia University with her in 1930. Walsh spent summers with her grandmother and visited Welty often. She studied acting at Yale, performed in Los Angeles on stage, television, and film, then became a lawyer for abused children. Since returning to acting in 2006, she has appeared in Bay Area venues and internationally and is a drama lecturer in continuing studies at Stanford.
