Good Ol' Girls

By D'Lyn Ford

Author Jill McCorkle knows all about good ol’ girls – the ones in her life and the ones who populate her short stories and novels. These feisty Southern women, who know that “big hair and a big heart do not mean a small mind” have taken the creative writing professor into the realms of musical theatre and songwriting over the last decade.

A new chapter begins this week as she follows her characters to New York City for an Off Broadway premiere of “Good Ol’ Girls,” based on the writings of McCorkle and Lee Smith, a longtime friend, collaborator and predecessor at NC State. “I’m not sure what we’ll see when the curtain rises – maybe a lot of surprises,” McCorkle says. “But that’s what happens when your characters come to life and start walking around.”
