CLW Wiley and the Hairy Man

When: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM on Nov 24, 2013

Where: Henderson Humanities Building, Gentry Auditorium


Like Aesop's fables, Wiley and the Hairy Man is drawn from native folk wisdom. "Outwit the Hairy Man three times and he won't scare you ever again," says Mammy. Trembling, Wiley sets out for the woods, prepared to confront the Hairy Man; he looks fear in the face and outwits it. The adventures are presented in lyric poetry and mime. The actors become the woods, the cabin, and all the props, making Wiley imaginative and easy to mount. A Joseph Jefferson Award winner for outstanding children's play. Tickets can be purchased in the Gentry box office beginning November 11th or by calling (865) 471-4163.
