"A Woman Called Truth" Play in Morristown Feb. 13
February 13, 2017

Walters State’s Morristown and Sevier County campuses will host performances of “A Woman Called Truth” by the acclaimed Word Players of Knoxville.
Shows will be at 12:20 p.m. on Feb. 13 in the Lyceum on the Morristown Campus and at 6:15 p.m. on Feb. 23 in CAPE-104 on the Sevier County Campus. Admission is free and the public is invited.
The production shares the achievements of Sojourner Truth, a prominent voice in both the movement for the rights of former slaves and for the rights of women. During the production, Sojourner Truth shares the cruel treatment she received as a slave and talks about how she worked to free her son. The play includes her famous speech, “Ain’t I A Woman.” 
The Word Players bring people, history and literature to life with shows that are designed with little or none of the traditional production trappings. Instead, shows rely on a few props and the talents of featured actors.
