"MADISON," A DRAMATIC MONOLOGUE. Kind hearts, about two years ago, I wrote a dramatic monologue about the founder of Western Carolina University. Since I grew up in Sylva, just below Western Carolina, I actually remember this fellow. I especially remember a day when I was about eight when he came to the Sylva Elementary School on "Sidney Lanier Day." The brought him from the nursing home and I have never forgotten him .... a frail little man who spoke in a whisper and we had to strain to hear him. He told us about sitting in the lap of Robert E. Lee and listening to General Lee's watch tick. He also told us about Traveler, General Lee's horse and I have made that story a part of my dramatic monologue. Come if you can. it is at the Universal Unitarian Church in Franklin, N. Cl which has an ideal stage for this monologue. The date is April 26th and the time is 7:00 pm. The church is located of Emory Road at 89 Sierra Drive. Call 828-369-8658 if you need more information. Click on the image above to enlarge it.
