Unbecoming, The Lewis Center for the Arts

Sunday January 17, 2021
2:00 PM

The Program in Theater presents Unbecoming, a new play by alumna Emma Watkins ’18, as a filmed theatrical production. Victorian housewife Lady Charlotte Guest aspires to become the first person to translate the Mabinogion — a collection of ancient Welsh stories — into English. Through her translation, she encounters Blodeuwedd, a woman conjured from flowers as a wife for her creator and punished for her infidelity. As Charlotte struggles to reconcile her creative ambitions with family expectations, she also confronts the power she holds in retelling Blodeuwedd’s story.

Live talkbacks on Zoom with the audience and creative team/scholars immediately follow two shows: join the conversations on 1/16 at 9:45 PM and 1/17 at 3:45 PM; registration required. Film is closed captioned; conversations offer live captions. FREE

Misadventures in Archaeology: The Life and Career of Charles Conrad Abbott, Tulpehaking Nature Center

Sunday January 17, 2021
6:00 PM

Join us for a presentation by Carolyn Dillian, who along with Charles Bello, authored the recently published “Misadventures in Archaeology: The Life and Career of Charles Conrad Abbott”. According to the Penn Press website, “Through various sources including archival letters and diaries, this book provides the most complete picture of the quirky and curmudgeonly, C. C. Abbott.” If you’ve ever wondered about why this amateur archaeologist who seems best remembered for being “wrong” still captures the interest and imagination of many, you’ll want to attend.

Please register here to receive the Zoom presentation link. This talk is co-sponsored by the Friends for the Abbott Marshlands and the Archaeological Society of New Jersey.
