On Being Told No; Keynote Lecture by Terry Galloway

Terry Galloway is a writer, director, and performer for stage, radio, video, and film. She started her long, eclectic career in theater arts in 1968 after the University of Texas at Austin’s Drama Department denied her admittance to its acting program. Before her cochlear implant in 2010, Galloway was a deaf lip reader with a lateral lisp. In 1969 she became affiliated with UT’s Shakespeare at Winedale Summer Theater Festival, first as a student, then from 1973-1976 as a Research Associate/Assistant Director, making a reputation for herself as a cross-dressing performer of comic male roles in Shakespeare.
In 1986 she created a solo performance Out All Night and won two B.Iden Payne Awards for Best Script and Best Actress from the Austin Circle of Theaters. The L.A. Weekly, in giving Out All Night its Performance Pick of the Week, called it “a searingly funny. . . unflinching glimpse of various states of alienation, ostracization, survival and triumph con chutzpah.”
Terry Galloway’s residency is presented by Theatre AUG at Augusta University and The Westobou Festival in coordination with the Augusta University Lyceum Series and the Department of Art and Design.
This event is free and open to the public.
