Actors from the Ringwald Theatre will bring the show to YOU! Join us here at the Ferndale Library on Sunday, August 13, for a free performance by way of a "play reading" (sans props, costumes, curtains, etc) featuring Lewiston by Samuel D. Hunter. For ages 18+.
Lewiston follows Alice, who sells fireworks by the side of the road with her roommate Connor in an area being taken over by developers of a new condo development. While Alice debates if she should sell her longtime home in exchange for a condo, Marnie, Alice's estranged granddaughter, arrives demanding the family home be saved for Marnie to purchase in order preserve the family history, one Marnie has not been a part of for some time. Alice and Marnie must now contend with a past that has yet to be engaged with and move forward into an untrodden and developing future as the land shifts around them.
