‘The Mouth of the South’


In addition to its regular mainstage programming, the Williamston Theatre offers scaled-down second-stage productions as part of its Dark Nights in Billtown series. The 2023-’24 series begins with a staged reading of the new play “The Mouth of the South,” by Allison Gregory, 7 p.m. Monday (Oct. 2). 

Emily Sutton-Smith, the theater’s co-founder and executive director, will play “the always outspoken and delightful troublemaker” Martha Mitchell, the “controversial cabinet wife of Attorney General and Richard Nixon advisor John Mitchell, beloved and despised media personality and silenced Watergate whistleblower. Martha paid dearly for ditching the party line, and now she has returned to exact the price.”

Admission is free, with a $10 suggested donation at the door. No reservations are required. For more information, visit williamstontheatre.org or call 517-655-7469.
