Orlando

Sponsored by: Yale Summer Cabaret

Sarah Ruhl’s spare, lyrical adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando is the story of the man woman whose one life encompasses many lives, spanning from the Elizabethan era to the modern age. It is both a heady ramble through history and a witty, tender mediation on the possibility of love in a world where everything, especially gender, is fluid. Director Sara Holdren’s wildly theatrical production allows us to revel, one final time, in the combined magic of story and stage.

The Life and Death of Doctor Faustus

The Life and Death of Doctor Faustus
July 23-August 1
By Christopher Marlowe
Adapted by Kee-Yoon Nahm and Andrej Visky
Directed by Andrej Visky

Doctor Faustus is the perpetual grad student who signs away his soul in exchange for knowledge and experience in Christopher Marlowe’s classic play. Director Andrej Visky leads the Rough Magic ensemble in a radical new adaptation—employing both actors and puppets—to create an epic, fantastical, constantly shifting stage-space. Prepare to laugh, gasp, and shiver as we tackle this tale of the world gone to Hell. With a hand puppet.

love holds a lamp in this little room

Based on the life and writings of Adah Isaacs Menken
Created and Performed by the Company
Conceived and Directed by Leora Morris
Before Lady Gaga, Marilyn Monroe, or Theda Bara, there was Adah Isaacs Menken: a mixed-race American actress and daredevil who scandalized Victorian society with her nude horse-riding act and salacious private life. Leora Morris and the Rough Magic Company dive into this theatricalist adventure, creating a never-before-seen piece full of pole dancing and poetry, cross-dressing and Kabbalah—all the myriad contradictions that made Adah Isaas Menken the original American bad girl.

Harcourt Wood Memorial Birthday Celebration

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

The Library will be decorated with flowers in compliance with Colonel H. Holton Wood’s request, which he made at the dedication of the Library in 1902.  At that time he asked that flowers be placed throughout the Library every year on the birth date of his son.  His request has been honored ever since.  Several years ago, the Library also added the tradition of commemorating this special day with a birthday cake.  This time honored tradition has become well know over the years, not only throughout the Valley, but well beyond.  It has been written about in the New York Times.  A memorial plaque in Harcourt’s memory is displayed at the front entrance of the Library.  The public is invited to visit throughout the day for cake and to learn more about the history of the Library.
