For $10, today's side deal gets you a ticket to Sister Myotis's Bible Camp presented by Voices of the South (a $20 value). This Groupon is exclusively for the performance on September 2, 2010 at 8 p.m.
Voices of the South adapts the literature of Southern writers such as Eudora Welty and William Faulkner for the stage with minimal alteration, letting audiences experience books as living things that sprout leather-bound arms and legs and roam the country in search of fast cars and faster women. Sister Myotis's Bible Camp tells the comedic story of three devout Southern ladies on a mission to save souls. In addition to writing the screenplay, Steve Swift also stars as Sister Myotis, the head deaconess of an 80,000-member church who takes on backsliders, "the chronically mediocre," and, as depicted in a YouTube clip that has earned more than 2.5 million views, thongs. Accompanied by Ima Lone and Velma Needlemeyer, Sister Myotis hosts an annual women's retreat to tend the flock, coaxing wayward members with strong words and a giant licorice lasso. This performance will run at TheatreWorks, a nonprofit organization that offers low-cost office, rehearsal, and performance space for emerging artists. Call to reserve your ticket after purchasing today's Groupon, and simply pick it up at will-call on the night of the show.
- You can’t go wrong with this sanctified show – it’s absolutely hilarious. The three-person cast is fantastic, the humor is a little dirty and the show closes with an awe-inspiring rendition of “Gangster’s Paradise”. – I Love Memphis
