Eugene Wolf: “The Book Of Mamaw”
May 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Saturday May 28th at 7:00 pm EST – Greeneville’s own Eugene Wolf will perform his one man
show “The Book Of Mamaw ” at the Appalachian Auditorium at St. James 3220 St. James Road
Long-time Barter Theatre Acting Company member, Eugene Wolf’s one-man show of stories, songs
and sketches about growing up with Bernice Rader, his Church of Christ grandmother who
recognized Eugene’s love of performing at an early age and guided him on his way.
Eugene Wolf has been performing since he was two years old, when he won his first talent contest
at the Capitol Theatre in Greeneville, Tennessee.
Rhonda Hinkle Broyles, his bandmate from Greeneville High School, went to New York to see this
play. She wrote, “The Book Of Mamaw” touches virtually every aspect of life as a human, all swept
up in songs that reflect relationships that leave skid marks, bright city lights, small town chatter,
graveside weeping, singing pigs and hope eternal. Laughter, silence, sing-alongs, shout outs and
grief all erupt from the audience as Eugene magically creates how his Mamaw rescued a 2-year-old
boy. She gave him steadfastness, love, a model of faith in God, music, and direction – along with
freedom – to become the performer and person he became.” Best of all, Eugene Wolf enables us to
see Greeneville even more as the charming, SPECIAL town that it is!
