Sept. 8:  TRIFLES by Susan Glaspell, American 1916

               A Husband. A Wife. A Murder.  Who Killed John Wright? Was it a stranger in the night, or was it

               his diminutive wife, Minnie?  And if she did, why kill a good man? Women don't just kill their men.

               But behind closed doors, the clues tell a tale of a different life.  One worth keeping.

               Come find out who is guilty as we explore this work based on the explosive true life story.

NEW THIS NOVEMBER

SHE SAID / HE SAID - Hedda Gabler: LeGalliene vs. Granville-Barker

Over the years, critics, producers, publishers, and often even audiences have said, “men just write better than women.”  Airmid’s lecture/performance series examines the similarities and differences in translations of the theatrical canon, by translators of different genders, such as Hedda Gabler under the hand of Eva LeGalliene versus the better known, more often taught as well as produced translation by Harley Granville-Barker.  This program seeks to dispel the belief that women are not as capable as men artistically, while illuminating the differences between the female and male “voice” and point of view in theatrical works.


This first SHE SAID/HE SAID uses both live performance and film clips from productions of HEDDA GABLER under the hand of Eva LeGalliene vs. Harley Granville-Barker.

Special guests: Dr. Michael Zelenak and Dr. Joan Templeton along with Airmid's literary and dramaturgical teams and actors will come together to present this one of a kind discussion performance program.
