Aeschylus’s 2,500-year-old trilogy of plays chronicles a society’s struggle to break the cycle of sacrifice, revenge, bloodshed, and punishment that plagues them. Ted Hughes’s powerful translation imbues The Oresteia with a burning contemporary relevance as it examines this struggle through the most personal microscope—the family cell—and stretches its primal and painful conflicts to their extremity. What is Justice?  And what is our individual and collective responsibility to carry it out?

The setting is New Breman, Minnesota during the summer of 1961.  While it is a time of innocence and hope for the country, for 13 year old Frank Drum it is a grim summer in which death visits frequently and assumes many forms.  Told from Frank’s perspective, 40 years after that fateful summer, this is the moving account of a boy standing at the door of manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him.  Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.”  Dessert and beverages will be provided.

THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH

Sponsored by: Yale School of Drama

The All-American Antrobus family is faced with an onslaught of natural and manmade disasters—the Ice Age, catastrophic flood, global war. The wheel of history threatens to flatten them in their suburban home; the play itself nearly falls apart. But again and again the Antrobuses bounce back. Is this farce? Or tragedy? Both. And more. The Skin of Our Teeth is a confrontation with the dark heart of America, the ferocious underground fire that threatens to consume us all.

Rise Again Sing-Along Concert

Sponsored by: Promoting Enduring Peace

Since 1988 millions of adults and children have sung and played from Rise Up Singing, a pillar of American musical history, containing the words and chords to 1200 songs from Beatles to ballads, from Bob Dylan to Broadway, from campfire favorites to gospel & Hebrew folksongs. Rise Again, the long-awaited sequel, includes the words and chords to 1200 entirely different songs - including new songs written since 1988 (but only the great ones!) and new genres only lightly covered in Rise Up Singing, such as Motown, blues, jazz & swing, and country.


In addition to songbook editors and perforers Annie Patterson and Peter Blood, the concert will feature Charlie King, dean of New England folk music, sister duo and family favorite The Nields, and the great Sally Rogers, all of whom have songs in Rise Again. Families are encouraged to attend with special ticket pricing for youngsters.

This historic event is co-sponsored by CT Folk and is a benefit for Promoting Enduring Peace (PEPeace), whose motto is “Peace On Earth — Peace With Earth.”

Advance tickets may be purchased online starting at $20 ($10 for under 18), a significant discount from the price at the door. Copies of Rise Again can be purchased along with tickets in advance or at the event. Order books and advance tickets at riseupandsing.org/events/rise-again-new-haven.

The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants, 1868-1938

Sponsored by: Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum

For the first time in the history of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, its Servants’ Quarters will open to the public and feature a new exhibition entitled, The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants, 1868-1938. This exhibition will open on Oct. 14, 2015, 12-4 p.m. and run through Oct. 30, 2016, with a preview at the LMMM Gala on Oct. 10th, 295 West Avenue, Norwalk, CT.

“During the Victorian era, the Mansion needed a small army to build it and run it,” said Patsy Brescia, LMMM Chairman of the Board. “We are thrilled to have an opportunity to bring the servants’ story to our communities with this highly educational exhibition.”

Telling the story of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion’s workforce is overdue, yet timely. Discussions nationwide on issues such as immigration and social justice, as well as the popular TV series Downton Abbey, have audiences visiting this landmark often asking about its servants and their lodgings.

The Mansion’s domestic servants’ rooms “equal the chambers of a first class hotel,” said The New York Sun in 1869. LeGrand Lockwood’s forward-thinking spirit behind these quarters offered momentary repose from the physical demands of a seven-day work week and 10-hour shifts for those living under the same roof as the family. By following the servants’ paths through the mansion, visitors will experience three distinct worlds—public, family, and service—and the social etiquette strictly enforced during the mansion’s seven decades as a private residence. “This exciting, new exhibition will create a very engaging experience for all of our visitors,” said LMMM Executive Director Susan Gilgore, “bringing history to life and ingeniously threading together this National Historic Landmark’s fascinating and multi-faceted past in a thought-provoking and powerful way.”

Little was left behind to reconstruct the servants’ lives and work here. The Stairs Below, curated by Kathleen Motes Bennewitz, aims to make real the ‘invisible’ staff, especially the Irish immigrants and African-Americans, whose livelihoods depended on the fortune and tolerance of the elite.

The museum’s exhibition, The Stairs Below: The Mansion’s Domestic Servants 1868-1938, is made possible in part by generous funding from the CT Humanities and CTC&G. The Museum’s 2015 cultural and educational programs are made possible in part by generous funding from LMMM’s Founding Patrons: The Estate of Cynthia Clark Brown; The Museum’s Distinguished Benefactors: Klaff’s, Xerox Foundation, and The Maurice Goodman Foundation.

Connecticut Humanities (CTH) is a non-profit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities that funds, creates and collaborates on hundreds of cultural programs across Connecticut each year. We bring together people of all ages and backgrounds to express, share and explore ideas in thoughtful and productive ways. From local discussion groups to major exhibitions on important historical events, CTH programs engage, enlighten and educate. Learn more by visiting www.cthumanities.org.

The Museum’s Education Program is made possible in part by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation and HealthyCT. The installation of the ADA Elevator and restoration of the Servants’ Quarters were generously funded by the LMMM Board of Trustees, the City of Norwalk, the Norwalk Historical Commission, and the State Historic Preservation Office of the Department of Economic and Community Development. The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is a National Historic Landmark.  For more information on schedules and programs please visit www.lockwoodmathewsmansion.com, e-mail info@lockwoodmathewsmansion.com, or call 203-838-9799.
