The world premiere of CHAPTER & VERSE by Obie Award winner, Memrie Innerarity. A consummate performer, Memrie first appeared at the Fringe in 2004 with her wonderful STORIES TO BE READ WITH A SOUTHERN ACCENT, which played to standing ovations. This one-person show brings stories about growing up in the Deep South, and the search for a path from her Mississippi childhood to America. 

Everything she touched proved successful.  – David Oistrakh, NY Times.
