My friend M.J. writes from the Gloucester Stage –
Gloucester Stage opens its second show of the season this coming Friday, July 1. MR FULLERTON: BETWEEN THE SHEETS is about Edith Wharton and her torrid affair in Paris with Morton Fullerton, and also her friendship with Henry James.
We’ve put together an event at the Sawyer Free Library on Thursday evening which is a not-very-disguised ploy to stir up some buzz about the play by having an evening of lively discussion about Wharton. First, we’ll present a short scene from the play. The playwright, Anne Undeland, will dish about the steamy letters between Wharton and Fullerton that inspired the play, and Prof Megan Dawley, an expert on American satire in the Gilded Age, will reveal some lesser known aspects of Wharton’s life and work. There will be a wine reception afterwards.
The event is Thursday 6-8 at the Library and I hope you can come!
Although St. Peter’s Fiesta has been canceled this year due to the global pandemic, if you would like to pray the novena to St. Peter, Day Eight is now available on YouTube. My friend Patty wrote and said she is finding listening very soothing and I couldn’t agree more. Please share.
The beautiful voices of the novena are Jean Marie Linquata, Ann Sanfillippo, Joanne Aiello, Nina Groppo, Grace Cusumano, Caryn Ryder, and Faye Quinlan
