The Williston Northampton School will present its fall play, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, October 21 -23 and October 28-30, 2010. All performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Williston Theatre, 18 Payson Avenue, in Easthampton.
One of the most famous comedies of all times, The Importance of Being Earnest tells the story of two men who decide to take on hidden identities in order to win the women of their dreams. Set in the London countryside at the turn of the last century, the play is full of witty dialog and sly criticism of the status quo.
The Williston Northampton School’s Writers’ Workshop Series will host author Debra Monroe for a public presentation on Thursday, October 7, at 7:00 p.m. in the Dodge Room of the Reed Campus Center. This event is free and the public is welcome.
Declared “required reading” by Vanity Fair and picked by People Magazine and Salon.com, Monroe’s memoir On the Outskirts of Normal: Forging a Family Against the Grain tells an unsentimental story about a white woman who adopts a black baby in small town Texas. Published in June 2010, it has since been on the “Top 10 Books to Pick Up” in O: the Oprah Magazine.
Rachel Folsom and Natania Hume will exhibit “Inside and Out,” a show of paintings at the Grubbs Gallery in the Reed Campus Center at The Williston Northampton School from September 8 to October 31, 2010. An artists’ reception will be held on September 19 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
