A Word For Word Staged Reading:
Off the Page: A Joy Williams Double-Header
Featuring "The Girls" and "The Lover"
Monday, June 19, 2017 at 7:00PM

Z Below
470 Florida Street
San Francisco, CA 94110


Produced by Word for Word's Associate Artist Group
Directed by Becca Wolff


Off the Page staged readings are the first step in developing a Word for Word production—taking a short story from the page to the stage. In this installment we are featuring two stories by Joy Williams: "The Girls" (from Best American Short Stories 2005), "a story in which evil reigns, front and center", plus "The Lover.".

"Williams is...the heir to Flannery O'Connor"—Atlantic Monthly
