Cerimon House, a Sanctuary for the Humanities, welcomes back award-winning actor of the stage and screen Megan Cole, presenting a dynamic theatrical sharing titled "Now I Must Begin Again." |
The subject of the monologue, Dorothy Pitkin, was a writer and photographer who chronicled her last months in a nursing home in 1973. She was fiercely independent, funny and brave, and struggled at the end of her life with the stripping away of dignity so common to drawn-out, end-stage disease. But she also lived with a fervent love of life in all its terrible beauty.
Megan Cole is a beloved member of the Cerimon House creative troupe, often performing in our salons and events. She has combined a life in theatre arts with an advocacy of medical arts. This 60-minute presentation will be of especial interest to those who so admired Ms. Cole's performance in our 2012 salon "The Wisdom of WIT."
A concise symposium follows, which includes an active discussion on issues of aging, end-stage disease, and the vital future, led by experts in the field. The evening also features live original music by local singer & songwriter, Avery Hill.
Thursday, April 25th @7:00pm. Seating is extremely limited. Save your place today.
$20 (sliding scale at the door - no one turned away for lack of funds).
