We Were Friends Play – Two Years In: Birthdays

June 18 @ 6:00 PM

Award-winning Firelight Theatre Workshop presents We Were Friends, a playful reimagining of Margaret Fuller and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s profound friendship set in today’s world. In this 12-part series (two episodes of which are being performed at the Concord Museum this summer), Firelight explores the intimate and private moments of this deep, platonic friendship. The series moves non-chronologically: each episode stands alone, and yet each is a puzzle piece in the larger portrait of their friendship. In this first installment, Two Years In: Birthdays, we invite you to join Margaret and Waldo as they celebrate their birthdays on two distant picnic blankets. Margaret is suffering from a cold and indecision. Waldo, a rising writer and speaker, wonders about Beauty: is it always there, or is there never enough of it? Bring your own picnic blanket and join Margaret and Waldo on the Museum’s front lawn for this outdoor performance. Following the performance, writers and performers Nora Fifer and Jason Lambert and co-writer Henry Walters will participate in a talk-back with the audience. $10 Member | $12 Non-Member (Receive a $2 discount if you purchase tickets to both performances in advance of the first performance)
