Drama Faculty's Play Premiers April 12

“Appalachian Geisha,” a play written by Catawba Valley Community College drama faculty Kim Stinson, will premier April 12 in Greensboro.

The story centers around a middle-aged Appalachian woman who, frustrated with always being a caregiver to others, becomes inspired to make changes in her life when she sees the image of a Geisha on a box of tea.

Winner of the Mark Gilbert Award and named North Carolina New Play Project for this season, the play is being produced by the City Arts Drama Center's 3rd Stage Company.

Stinson holds a bachelor’s in fine art in technical theatre from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. She also earned a master’s degree in theatre from Miami University of Ohio and a master’s in fine arts in playwriting from Spalding University. Her plays have received readings and productions throughout the South as well as national publication.
