Calling all Friends of Hog Island! Don’t miss this wonderful play about Mabel Loomis Todd and Hog Island. Bring your friends and make it a Hog Island evening. Rebecca Gilman was Hog Island’s first Artist in Residence and wrote the play at the Bingham Cottage.
See you at the theater.
Best known as Emily Dickinson’s posthumous editor,
Mabel Loomis Todd is a woman of the world. Priding
herself on being an inspired conversationalist, she
invited scandal by enjoying a glass of wine in mixed
company, and by enjoying the company of men other than her husband —
sometimes in the company of her husband. Now in her 70s and living on
Hog Island in Maine, the accomplished journalist and
naturalist regales us with tales of her storied life, spilling
secrets and revealing the true nature of her relationship
with one of America’s most celebrated poets.
Pulitzer Prize finalist Rebecca Gilman’s world
premiere play is brought to the stage in this insightful
and impassioned tour-de-force performance by one of
theater’s most beloved performers, Kathleen Chalfant.
