Rebecca Walker will present her one-woman show “Peacocks and Porches” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Bayou Theater of the University of Houston-Clear Lake at 2700 Bay Area Blvd. in Houston.

In her solo show, Walker, who came to understand the concepts of grace and hospitality in Southern culture as a child growing up on her grandparents’ porches in Texas and Louisiana, will present a show that’s part memoir, part poetry, and part Southern fiction.

The show, she said, is a mixture of personal narrative about her grandparents, a collection about poetry, and a short story from Flannery O’Connor about raising peacocks.

For tickets and information, visit or call 281-283-2065.

All proceeds will benefit El Mina Shriners of Galveston, the Ronald McDonald House of Galveston, and the American Heart Association Bay Area/Galveston chapter.

For tickets and information, visit or call 832-265-8157.
