News John O'Neal's Don't Start Me to Talking or I'll Tell You Everything I Know, October 11.

 

MARLBORO, VT- (October 4, 2008) - Marlboro College will present a free, public production of John O'Neal's Don't Start Me to Talking or I'll Tell You Everything I Know at 8:00 pm on Saturday, October 11, in Whittemore Theater. In addition to his public performance, he will conduct story circle sessions with Marlboro students, faculty and staff.

Don't Start Me to Talking or I'll Tell You Everything I Know is part one of O'Neal's Junebug Cycle: Sayings from the Life and Writings of Junebug Jabbo Jones, a cycle of stories, songs and poems drawn from over 100 years of African American oral history. O'Neal did an artist residency at the Sandglass Theater in Putney this past April, conducting story circles and performing pieces of his Junebug Cycle.

"The subtlety and strength of Mr. O?'Neal's performance are something to behold," wrote The New York Times. "He is a very funny man and he is a great actor."

John O'Neal is the award-winning artistic director of the New Orleans-based Junebug Productions Theater Company. He co-founded the Free Southern Theater in 1963 as a cultural arm of the southern Civil Rights movement, and was the recipient of the 2002 Ford Foundation's Leadership for a Changing World award.
