The opening weekend of Pride & Prejudice at Lost Nation Theater was loads of fun, with jovial crowds who were happy to laugh along with this farcical adaptation of the classic novel. (The Times-Argus describes the production as Jane Austen meets Looney Toons.) We’re looking forward to two more weekends of performances, so please come out to see the show if you’re in the area!
Also while I’m in Montpelier, I’ll be sharing excerpts from my new solo show, Les filles du quoi?, at a reading on Tuesday, October 15, at 7:30pm at Lost Nation. The show has come a long way since I read an earlier draft in the same spot two years ago: I’ve changed its title, burned through a dozen more drafts, presented workshop performances in New Brunswick and Maine, and received funding from the New Brunswick Arts Board and the Canada Council on the Arts that has allowed me to continue its development. (You can read more about the show right here.) This reading will give me a chance to share some of the newer material, talk about the show’s themes and creation, and (always my favorite part) listen to the audience’s responses. Admission is by donation, and all proceeds support Lost Nation’s arts and educational programs. Please come out and say hello!
