"Richard Adams’s Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. Set in the Hampshire Downs in Southern England, an idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of “suspense, hot pursuit, and derring-do” (Chicago Tribune) follows a band of rabbits in flight from the incursion of man and the destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they travel forth from their native Sandleford warren through harrowing trials to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society. “A marvelous story of rebellion, exile, and survival” (Sunday Telegraph) this is an unforgettable literary classic for all ages."
Address for this event will be sent closer to the event date. Details to follow on ticket purchase. We have been graciously invited by a Nerdy Girl with TheatreSquared to enjoy their virtual streaming of the play, "The Half-Life of Marie Curie." We will be hosting an in-person watch party with discussion to follow, though if you cannot attend in person, there are still opportunities to enjoy the show virtually. Tickets will be $10/person. This will be a great opportunity to support our local theatre community. More info to follow! About the Show: "In 1911, Marie Curie won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her discovery of the elements radium and polonium. By 1912, she was the object of ruthless gossip over an alleged affair with a married Frenchman, all but erasing her achievements from public memory. Weakened and demoralized by an unrelenting and unforgiving press, Marie joins her friend and colleague Hertha Ayrton, an electromechanical engineer and suffragette, to recover from the scandal at Hertha's seaside retreat on the British coast. Presented by TheatreSquared in the first production since its New York debut, The Half-Life of Marie Curie by Lauren Gunderson (Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley) revels in the power of female friendship between two fearless scientists at the heights and depths of their careers and lives.
