Sewanee's Tennessee Williams Playwright in Residence, Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder, presents a reading of her new play entitled The Light of the World.

A brief synopsis is included below:

In the window of a church is a small Confederate flag. When a violent incident in the community occurs, the presence of the flag is called into question, forcing the congregation to choose between the past they elect to honor and the future they dare to envision.

The performance will take place in Convocation Hall, with light refreshments served.
