    Actors Studio - The Gin Game - A Staged Reading

    This Pulitzer Prize Award winning play uses the card game as a metaphor for life. As an aging couple in a seedy nursing home play the game, the intimacies of their pasts spill forth like the cards from the deck as they reach out to make some sense of their damaged lives. By Donald L. Coburn. Featuring M.Lynda Robinson and Richard McElvain.

    Richard McElvain, co-founder of BOSTON READS, has been working in the Boston area as an actor, director, writer, translator and teacher for more years than he cares to count. He is a recipient of both the Elliot Norton Award and the IRNE for his acting. His directorial and acting credits are too numerous to mention.

    M. Lynda Robinson, co-founder of BOSTON READS, has been working on Boston theatre stages for the last 35 years. There is virtually no stage in Boston she has not tread upon multiple times. She was awarded one of the first Elliot Norton and IRNE Awards for her stage work. She was on the founding committee for StageSource and has founded three theatres - The Court Theatre, The West End Theatre and The Blackburn Performing Arts Theatre. She is an accomplished, published and produced playwright with credits too numerous to mention.

    Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk Hosted by the Salisbury PTA

    Join us at our sixth annual Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk at Historic Pettengill Farm (circa 1792). The gems of the event are the near 200 Fairy and Gnome Homes peppered throughout a 1 mile wooded path that leads to the salt marsh and back. Homes are created by very talented professionals, families, school children, and local businesses.

    A LITTLE BIT MORE
    It's true, we have awesome FREE crafts and activities. We have all day live music, improv theater performances by Theater in the Open, fairy tales read in the woods, and other entertainment. Yes - we have fun places to shop and souvenirs priced to please. We anticipate hundreds of meticulously created Fairy and Gnome homes peppered throughout the most magical woods with a treat half way that will take your breath away, that only our beautiful seaside town could offer. Oh and of course, yummy food trucks. But what you can't see, is what we are most proud of. The magic that is ignited within the youngest to the oldest. Kids crouching in the woods discovering Fairy and Gnome homes - you'll hear the squeals and see the sparkle in their eyes when they think they have spotted one. It's the folks dancing to their favorite tunes in a sea of bubbles, or enjoying the quietness of the farm while watching the stillness of the pond. Not a care in the world or an ear for the "static" that exists outside of this magical event.

    Tickets are on sale now and we offer FREE admission to home creators. We hope you join us!

    For this special performance, the NCS orchestra will include a professional orchestra of approximately 30 musicians including strings, brass, woodwinds and percussion. 

    We hope you will join us for these spectacular performances to celebrate the 85th Anniversary of NCS.
