More About Melda

Best Author of Her Generation

“…Thoughtfully insightful and funny to boot.” -Houston Press

“The dialogue in the play was so spot on. I sat there crying with the characters and laughing with the characters because the memories were so vivid for me.”–New Pittsburgh Courier

A True Masterpiece, Bravo!

“Full of pathos and surprises, Front Porch Society reminds us how powerfully personal tragedy can affect one’s political idealism, or lack thereof.”

Doni Wilson, Houstonia Magazine

A Unique View On The World

“…Beaty’s genius is that she can take something so seemingly matter-of-fact and without even the slightest hint of artifice or melodrama work it into an evening of great depth and powerful theatricality.”

Ted Hoover, Pittsburgh Current
