Eugene Wolf's THE BOOK OF MAMAW Comes To Barter Theatre

Barter Theatre presents "The Book of Mamaw," written and performed by Eugene Wolf. The highly coveted production will only have 11 performances during a three-week span, May 23 to June 14.

Eugene Wolf first joined the Barter Theatre's Resident Acting Company in 1997. He has since been in countless Barter productions throughout his career, making him one of Barter Theatre patrons' most beloved performers. He has been a member of the country-singing duo, The Brother Boys for 30 years and appeared on albums with Jerry Douglas, Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss.

Wolf was raised by his grandmother, Bernice Radar, the inspiration behind his life story, "The Book of Mamaw." A seed was planted in me at birth and cultivated through my youth by my grandmother. This show is the flower of spirit that blossomed from it," said Wolf. Bernice recognized his love of performing at the early age of two and encouraged him to follow his dreams. This one-man show is dynamic in its use of stories, songs, and sketches. Wolf is heartfelt yet hilarious as he illustrates life growing up with Mamaw.

"Book of Mamaw" is made possible by Sam and Jan Hurt.

To purchase tickets, please visit or call 276-628-3991. Tickets for all performances of "Book of Mamaw" begin at just $18.
