Prize-Winning Prose to be Performed at NC Stage

Peter Neofotis is an extraordinary storyteller. He does more than narrate; he embodies every syllable of his well-crafted prose, which centers on a small town in the mountains of Virginia. He navigates characters, drama and flashbacks with grace and brings life to an entire town through the personalities and personal histories of its people. But, we don’t want him to quit his day job.

Neofotis wrote his collection of short stories, “Concord, Virginia,” by night while working as a Contributing Author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Neofotis grew up in the Blue Ridge and will be returning to the mountains to perform his stories.

Performances will be held August 20-23 and 27-29 at 7:30 PM at the North Carolina Stage Company in Asheville. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Reach the box office at (828) 239-0263 or online at www.ncstage.org.
