"Many plays, certainly mine, are like blank cheques. The actors and directors put their own signature on them." —Thornton Wilder
Join us in April for performances and dynamic discussions of the works of American playwright Thornton Wilder. Two performances of selected short plays and a one-day literary symposium will introduce Wilder's works to the newly curious and expand understanding of them to aficionados. Wilder is considered one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Guest lecturers will focus on the relevance of Wilder's work to us today. Special guest Tappan Wilder, the author's nephew and literary executor, will speak on various aspects of the author's life and works.
$30 registration fee includes symposium, lunch, performance
(Additional family members $10 each)
Symposium registrations are due Tuesday, April 5. Late registrations and walk-ins will be accepted, however lunch will not be guaranteed. We will do our best to provide lunch for last minute attendees.
