For more than 30 years, area theater enthusiasts have brought to life the beloved stories created by the writer known as O.Henry – actually, Greensboro’s own William Sydney Porter, one of the most famous literary figures of the 20th century.


Formerly called “5 By O.Henry” and produced at the Greensboro History Museum, the stage production was renamed in 2019 when it moved to The Virginia Somerville Sutton Theatre at Well-Spring, A Life Plan Community.


Opening Sept. 6, “An O.Henry Celebration: Stories & Songs” will feature four O.Henry short stories, among them “The Ransom of Red Chief.”
