The Walla Walla Summer Stage Festival includes Songs of the Nearly Forgotten presented in the Electric Lounge at Gesa Power House Theatre on Saturday, August 7 at 9:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 8 at 5 p.m.
Songs of the Nearly Forgotten is a one-woman story and song show in which storyteller Katie Anne Mitchell explores themes of isolation, femininity and finding your place in this world through conducting a séance. That’s right. A séance.
Through writing, through performance, and through songs Mitchell shares slice-of-life stories that are simply and heartbreakingly human. Her most recent release Alice’s Land draws from folk, alternative, country, and spoken word roots to share small moments in the lives of five women. Five different women who have forgotten themselves, or forgotten what exists around them, or have been forgotten by the world. More than forgetting, though, this performance is about remembrance. These are the stories that drive that trusty old train from victim to creator, choo-chooing at every stop in between.
General admission tickets ($15) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Click here to view the full Walla Walla Summer Stage Festival schedule!
