The Liars Bench will present “Birdell” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Western Carolina University Mountain Heritage Center.

“Birdell,” a dramatic monologue by famed Appalachian storyteller Gary Carden, starring Bobbie Curtis in a story of a defiant mountain woman forced off her land by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and because of the rising waters of Fontana Lake. Regular cast members include Carden, Lloyd Arneach, Paul Iarussi, William Ritter, the Boys From Tuckaseegee, Barabra Duncan, Karen Barnes and the show’s mascot Bodine. The Liars Bench recognizes established regional artists and performers and also encourages new talent. Carden has said the show will be a benefit for the organization.

Admission is $10. Tickets will be available at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva and at the door the night of the show.
