Seven soldiers and a nurse share a hospital ward in Richmond, Virginia even as the cannon balls fall around them during the last days of the Civil War. While each has lost something different to the war - an arm, a leg, a voice, a faith, a son—all have lost their courage and self-respect. In the course of the play, harsh secrets of wartime deeds emerge as the men struggle to recover their honor and redeem themselves even as their beloved South dies just outside the hospital walls. Written by Steve Warren. Sat., September 9, 2017 | 8pm, Sun., September 10, 2017 | 3pm, Fri., September 15, 2017 | 8pm, Sat., September 16, 2017 | 8pm, Sun., September 17, 2017 | 3pm, Fri., September 22, 2017 | 8pm, Sat., September 23, 2017 | 8pm

White Memorial Foundation Deep Travel: How to Journey Like Henry David Thoreau with David Leff


80 Whitehall Road, Litchfield, CT Phone: 860-567-0857.

Join David K. Leff for a Thoreau inspired dinner and a slide illustrated talk that opens a window into the Concord naturalist's way of approaching a trip, or what he would call an "excursion." Learn how Thoreau prepared, why he chose particular means of travel, his technique for close observation of people and nature, and the impact of travel for life on return. Although Thoreau never used the term deep travel, it well describes his expansive and enriching way of experiencing places near and far. You too can travel like Thoreau. Learn how. Leff has written two books with a Thoreau travel nexus: Deep Travel: In Thoreau's Wake on the Concord and Merrimack (2009) and recently Canoeing Maine's Legendary Allagash: Thoreau, Romance and Survival of the Wild (2016). Books will be available for sale and signing. View his work at 7:00 P.M., A. B. Ceder Room, Members: $25.00 Non-members: $30.00. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Call 860-567-0857 or you can register online
