O. Henry, Oh, My!
by Extended Run Players

Mar. 17 - Mar. 18, 2017

We have had a fun time rehearsing and preparing these stories by O. Henry for you.  William Sidney Porter wrote in the early 20th century, even living in Austin* and San Antonio** for part of his career.  He is best known for stories that portray the lives of common people, and which often have a surprise ending.  Enjoy with us this evening colorful characters, humorous situations, made-up and outrageous words, and a bit of poignancy.
