This free lecture will take place at the Silk Room at Cheney Hall, 177 Hartford Rd, Manchester. Guests are invited to bring a lunch and beverages will be served.
Join David Garnes, director Debi Freund, and others for a discussion of this acclaimed comedy-drama by award-winning playwright Stephen Karam (The Humans). Set in the steel and coal mining Lehigh Valley of Eastern Pennsylvania, SONS OF THE PROPHET was described in a 2011 The New Yorker review as “ravishing…at once deep, deft, and beautifully written.”
For more than three seasons, David Garnes has led Little Theatre’s Lunchtime Lecture Series. He is the author of three books: Waitin’ for the Train to Come In: A Novel of World War II; a book of memoir essays, From My Life: Travels and Adventures; and After the War Was Over: Poems of an American Childhood. His essays have appeared in many publications, including America in WWII, The Isherwood Century, Telling Tales Out Of School, Latin Lovers, Stories From The Other Side, Chicken Soup For the Volunteer’s Soul, Liberating Minds, When A Lifemate Dies, A Loving Testimony, Mourning Our Mothers, and various newspapers and academic reference books. Garnes’ forthcoming books are Back to Manhattan: A Life in New York and Morningside Drive, a spin-off to his World War II novel.
Little Theatre’s Lunchtime Lecture Series is offered the week before the opening night of each production. These popular conversations offer an opportunity to learn about the upcoming shows, providing background information about the play or musical, its production history and the playwright and other artists. These discussions are informal lecture-style with the opportunity to ask questions following the chat. Lunchtime Lectures are free of charge and need no reservations or tickets.
