Highlands Cashiers Players upcoming production of “You know I Can’t Hear You When The Water's Running,” by Robert Anderson, is in full swing, under the watchful eyes of the directors.

The play is a collection of four vignettes, separate stories that are connected thematically, so each of the four scenes has a separate director, working with the supervision of Production Coordinator, Donna Cochran. These seemingly unrelated stories have more in common then they may seem at first, as each segment uses both comedy and drama to address what happens when two people encounter difficult circumstances and bring their differing opinions along with them.


Clay artists in the far western counties of North Carolina will meet on Monday, Feb. 28, at 6:30 p.m. at the Swain County campus of Southwestern Community College to create a clay guild.

Many talented clay artists reside in the far western, seven-county area of Swain, Jackson, Macon, Clay, Cherokee, Graham and Haywood counties, including both those who focus on functional work and as well as pure art.
