“The Petty Chronicles” coming to Bongo After Hours Theatre

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective. As I told ‘The Tennessean’ in 2008, “since moving to Nashville twenty-five years ago, I have met people whose lives do not remotely reflect the caricature of what many outside our city presume to be a ‘Nashvillian’ or the Nashville experience. “Underground Nashville” thus explores the soul of the city, not its surface—offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”

“The Petty Chronicles” to open at Bongo After Hours Theatre on Friday, February 12


The all-new theatre presentation of Rachel Gladstone’s The Petty Chronicles—based on the Nashville author’s nationally popular comedic blog of the same name (see Firstwivesworld.com)—opens on Friday, February 12 at Bongo After Hours Theatre on Belmont Boulevard, and will run through that weekend (February 12-13) and the following weekend (February 19-20).

By turns hilarious, satirical, insightful, and empowering, Ms. Gladstone’s The Petty Chronicles enjoys, in its blog form, the devoted following of tens of thousands of readers coast to coast, who relate directly to the blog’s pointed barbs, eye-opening insights, and empowering life lessons garnered from divorce and its aftermath. Directed by Valerie S. Hart, the Bongo After Hours Theatre performance will be the first-ever presentation of The Petty Chronicles in play form.

Don’t miss my interview with author/blogger/playwright Rachel Gladstone in an upcoming post on “Underground Nashville.”

David M. (Dave) Carew is editor of “Underground Nashville” and the author of the novels “Everything Means Nothing to Me: A Novel of Underground Nashville” and “Voice from the Gutter.” He also is a freelance publicist and copywriter.
