Renowned writer, actress, and storyteller Elaine Blanchard; previously known to Voices of the South audiences for her autobiographical performance, For Goodness Sake, and creator of the Prison Stories project, now brings us a new chapter in her life story. Skin and Bones is based on her personal experience of learning to live well with the body she was given, while offering audiences a glimpse into her own struggles with weight, body image, faith, love, and family. 

Life offers each of us the opportunity to choose; whether to accept what we have been given, how we live with ourselves and others, and whether to trust and care for our own unique personalities. Join Voices of the South and storyteller Elaine Blanchard for Skin and Bones, as she takes us on her personal journey toward greater self-respect, and invites us all to celebrate and honor the body that carries us from birth to death.

Directed by Alice Berry
