Eleemosynary @ Sandwich Town Hall
When: Sun Nov 25th
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Where: Sandwich Town Hall | 145 Main Street | Sandwich
The Glass Town Cultural District in Sandwich, newly designated through the State’s Cultural Council will launch its programing side on Sunday, November 25 at 2:00 p.m. in Sandwich’s historic Town Hall by presenting Ellemosynary, a wonderful play by Lee Blessing. The Cotuit Center for the Arts has produced the play and it has already enjoyed a successful run there. The center is a partner with The Glass Town Cultural District, bringing Sandwich audiences this play after bringing the play 12 Angry Men to Town Hall in September. Ellemosynary is directed by Sandwich’s own Carol McManus with Sandwich resident Patty Anderson in the cast. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Sandwich Library or through Cotuit Center for the Arts at artsonthecape.org or by calling 508-428-0669.
Ellemosynary means charitable and it is the word that wins the National Spelling Bee for Echo, the teen-aged girl who begins this story of her mother, her grandmother and herself. This beautifully written piece weaves their story simply. Enjoy each characters journey as we are swept into their world at different points in their lives.
