SOUTHAMPTON ARTS SUMMER 2014 PUBLIC EVENTS
July 12 7:30 PM
Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell (free event with ticket reservation)
Starring: Mercedes Ruehl, Matthew Klam, Ain Gordon, and others
Stories Left to Tell catapults us into the hilarious and heartbreaking life and words of one of the most revered storytellers of our time. A five-person ensemble performs Spalding Gray’s legendary stories and monologues—interwoven with previously unpublished material from his letters and journals. As Backstage put it: “Gray was a funny funny man; this show is a gift.”
Reading: What I Really Want to Do is Write Plays (free event with ticket reservation)
Join us for a double bill of genre-bending Southampton faculty in conjunction with The Southampton International Theatre Workshops and Festival. The evening features readings of selections from original plays by poet Julie Sheehan and fiction writer Christian McLean.
Tuesday July 15th at 7PM (free event with ticket reservation)
Screening of John Huston's 1946 documentary "LET THERE BE LIGHT."
A film about veterans with shell shock and how they were censored by the Army. A panel discussion on PTSD to follow with guests- war correspondent Masha Gessen, combat veteran and writer Adrian Bonenberger and Director of the World Trade center health program, Benjamin Luft. Moderated by Daniel Menaker. This event is in Duke Lecture Hall.
Hear five storytellers share tales of being out of their element: the freak, the foreigner, dressed for the opera at the clambake, out of the loop, the only person in the loop, the voice of dissent, the lonely fool. Outsider, interloper, odd man out. The black sheep, the chatty monk, the juror with a doubt.
Ted Conover, Tara Clancy, Simon Doonan, Wendy Suzuki, Meg Wolitzer, among others
