Edith Wharton: Between the Sheets (and the Pages)

Edith Wharton: Between the Sheets (and the Pages)

The Gloucester Stage Company, in collaboration with the Sawyer Free Library, is hosting a special event, Edith Wharton: Between the Sheets (and the Pages), on Thursday, June 30 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Library located at 2 Dale Avenue in Gloucester.

The evening will explore some lesser-known aspects of the life of celebrated novelist Edith Wharton’s (House of Mirth, The Age of Innocence, Ethan Frome), including her passionate affair with Morton Fullerton in Paris.

Massachusetts Playwright Anne Undeland will discuss the correspondence between Wharton and Fullerton that inspired her award-nominated play, MR. FULLERTON, BETWEEN THE SHEETS, a turn-of-the-century tale of unbridled passion set to be staged by the Gloucester Stage Company. Professor M.M. Dawley of Boston University will speak about Wharton’s work and how, under the surface, the Gilded Age, and Wharton herself, were not that innocent. Actors from Gloucester Stage will then present a scene from the production which will open on July 1 and run through July 24.

Light refreshments will be offered in the Library’s amphitheater to conclude the event. The special evening is free and open to the public.  For more information, visit SawyerFreeLibrary.org and for information on the play, visit gloucesterstage.com.
