During the event entitled, Mystery at Elm Park: The Mansion’s Pen and Inkwell Gala, co-chaired by Michael DiScala and Joseph Passero, guests will have the opportunity to meet Berry and hear about his latest novel, The Lincoln Myth.

The Mansion has launched a prize-winning Young Writers’ Competition among students from area schools and Berry will judge the finalists and be on hand to meet the contestants when it culminates with the awards presentation at 6 p.m. the night of the Gala. Trustee and Gala co-Chair Michael DiScala said, “The Gala promises to offer an evening of great entertainment; it will also be a unique opportunity to support education and our nation’s history, while surrounded by the beauty and splendor of this iconic mansion.” 

Guests will also be invited to preview the Mansion’s new exhibit, Hidden Treasures: Artifacts from the LMMM Collection. Rarely seen artifacts and exquisite decorative arts objects from the Lockwood and Mathews families will be on view, giving visitors a glimpse into the personal lives and styles of the Mansion’s former occupants. The exhibit will include a magnificent silver inkwell with cherubs designed by Tiffany & Co., among other rare artifacts.

The Museum’s Gala is sponsored by M.F. DiScala & Company, Inc., Klaff’s, Mimi and David Findlay Jr., People’s United Bank, and media sponsor Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. All Gala marketing materials have been designed by TFI Envision, Inc.

Middletown

Sponsored by: Yale Summer Cabaret

Will Eno’s exquisitely moving and deeply human play Middletown, written in 2010, contemplates the big questions of existence, reflecting on birth, death and the messy middle in-between. Middletown is an Our Town for our current times, a meditation on life’s ineffable mysteries. Eno’s characters eloquently and wryly articulate the fears, anxieties and regrets that characterize our contemporary experience. A gorgeous gem of a play that will engage, surprise and delight your imagination.

Will Eno’s first play, Thom Pain (Based on Nothing), premiered to acclaim in New York in 2005 and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, prompting New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood to hail the young playwright as “a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation.”  His play The Realistic Joneses is currently open on Broadway after receiving its World Premiere at the Yale Repertory Theater in 2012, where Eno continues to be a commissioned artist at Yale’s Binger Center for New Theater. The playwright is also enjoying success off-Broadway with the current production of The Open House at the Signature Theatre. We are excited to bring Eno’s distinctive voice back to New Haven this summer.
