Single-Color Screen Printing: One Day Introduction JULY
Description: Ever wanted to make your own custom t-shirt, tote bag, sticker, poster, or greeting card? In this one day intensive introduction to screen printing, you'll learn all the basics and by the end of the day create a screen using your artwork and print a one-color design on your choice of t-shirts or paper. Class Goals: Students will learn all they need to start screen printing at home or in the Asylum's print studio. After an informational overview, students will dive right in to hands-on work so that by the end of the workshop they leave with their own printed products as well as the skills to print on their own. Prerequisites: Students should be prepared with designs/artwork you'd like to print to send in pdf form to the instructor. No previous screen printing experience required. Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials: Students should bring their own materials to print on for their final project -- t-shirt, tote bag, paper, etc. -- and a $10 materials fee, payable to the instructor, to cover consumables. The instructor will provide materials for test prints and screens and ink, though students have the option of bringing their own. Instructor Biography:   Erik Heumiller is a video editor, cartoonist and printmaker. His print experience comes from his years working in a T-shirt shop. He currently works for the local engineering company DGF Technologies, but he still likes to squeeze in some print time whenever he's got a spare moment.     Event Time: This one-day session will run Saturday, July 18, 11AM-4PM.   REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form. CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

Russian Tattoo: A Memoir
In 2010, Elena Gorokhova came to The Mount to talk about her memoir A Mountain of Crumbs. This summer, she is back to introduce us to her second book: Russian Tattoo, an exquisite portrait of mothers and daughters that reaches from Cold War Russia to modern-day New Jersey. In Russian Tattoo, Gorokhova learns that the journey of an immigrant is filled with everyday mistakes, small humiliations, and a loss of dignity. Cultural disorientation comes in the form of not knowing how to eat a hamburger, buy a pair of shoes, or catch a bus. But through perseverance and resilience, Elena gradually adapts to her new country. With the simultaneous birth of her daughter and the arrival of her Soviet mother, who comes to the US to help care for her granddaughter and stays for 24 years, it becomes the story of a unique balancing act and a family struggle: three generations of strong women with very different cultural values, all living under the same roof and battling for control. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Elena Gorokhova grew up in Leningrad, now St. Petersburg, in a courtyard that became a more accurate emblem for the Soviet life than the ubiquitous hammer and sickle: a crumbling façade with locked doors and stinking garbage bins behind them. Like everyone else, when she was nine, Elena joined the Young Pioneers and had a red kerchief tied around her neck. A tiny cell in the body of a Leningrad school collective, she promised to live, study, and work as the great Lenin bequeathed every citizen to do. But she harbored a passion that grew into an un-Soviet failing: at age ten she was seduced by the beauty of the English language and spent the next eight years deciphering its secrets, to the bewilderment of her mother (a front-line surgeon during WWII). What followed was the English Department of Leningrad University, a marriage to a visiting American student, and a scandal, both public and private. After six months of official hurdles and family turmoil, Elena left for America, a ravaged suitcase on the KGB inspector’s table with twenty kilograms of what used to be her life. In the United States, Elena received a Doctorate in Language Education and taught English as a Second Language, Linguistics and Russian at various colleges and universities. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Daily Telegraph, on BBC Radio, and in a number of literary magazines. *** Note: Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date. We would like to thank Blantyre for their ongoing sponsorship and support of the Summer Lecture Series.

Stash and the SoulKrushers
Stash and notloB go back a long way. We first met at the venerable Nameless Coffeehouse in Cambridge when his Berklee band Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers mates were part of the bill. It would be fair to say their musiciaship inspired notloB's start. We have since worked together three times: 05/23/09 Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers  01/23/10 Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers 02/05/11 Stash Wyslouch & Andy Reiner Has it really been four years? It's time to make up for lost time! So when Stash called it was an automatic. Half Polish-half Colombian guitarist Stash (short for Stanislaw) Wyslouch grew up on heavy metal before submerging himself in bluegrass and country music. His history in hard rock still manifests itself in his propensity for wringing unexpected sounds out of his guitar and belting at the top of his vocal range. Since graduating from the Berklee College of Music in 2010 Stash has been touring full-time with the progressive bluegrass band, Rounder Recording Artists The Deadly Gentlemen having released two albums as guitarist and singer of the group, "Carry me to Home" (2011) and "Roll me, Tumble Me" (2013). His resume also includes membership in The Boston Boys, Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers, and a US-State department sponsored tour with The Earth Stringband in 2011, being the first all-American band to play in the country of Timor-Leste. With Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers in Joliette, QC at the Memoires et Racines festival July 2012. Stash has played at many well-known festivals and venues including Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival (Oak Hill, NY), Old Settler's Music Festival (Austin, TX), Northwest String Summit (Portland, OR), DelFest (Cumberland, MD), Rockygrass (Lyons, CO), Big Sky Big Grass (Big Sky, MT), Merlefest (Wilkesboro, NC), Savannah Music Festival (Savannah, GA), River City Roots (Missoula, MT) among some of them. His touring career has taken him across the globe to Sweden, Denmark, the UK, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Timor-Leste, Thailand, Cambodia, Korea, Japan and Laos. Stash has shared the stage with The Del McCoury band, David Grisman, The Yonder Mountain Stringband, Sarah Jarosz, Chris Thile, Peter Rowan, Michael Daves, Darol Anger, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters, and more. After nearly a decade of touring and recording, Stash is working on his first solo release as a band leader delivering his unique and edgy blend of heavy metal and American roots music, to be released in the Summer of 2015. The SoulKrushers are Stash Wyslouch - guitar Browyn Keith-Hynes - fiddle Noam Wiesenberg - bass Sean Trischka - percussion www.stashwyslouch.com www.facebook.com/stashwyslouchmusic $10 general admission, $8 seniors and students. http://www.eventbrite.com/o/notlob-music-6730833315 As the room capacity is 35, we strongly recommend purchasing as soon as possible.

Elephant Bill: The Inspiring Story of James Howard Williams
Elephant Company, the topic of Vicki Constantine Croke’s lecture at The Mount, was received with rave reviews, among which The New York Times Book Review stated “nothing less than a sweeping tale, masterfully written.” Part biography, part war epic, and part wildlife adventure, this lecture illuminates the remarkable story of James Howard “Billy” Williams, whose uncanny rapport with the world’s largest land animals transformed him from a carefree young man into the charismatic war hero known as “Elephant Bill.” In 1920, Williams took a job in the teak business, drawn by the lure of working with the elephants. It was love at first sight. Impressed with their intelligence, courage, kindness, and humor, he believed that just living with them made him a better man. He worked to cure their ills and he fought for their humane care. Elephant Company is also a tale of war and daring. When Imperial Japanese forces invaded Burma in 1942, Williams joined the elite Force 136, the British dirty tricks department, operating behind enemy lines. His war elephants would carry supplies, build bridges, and transport the sick and elderly over treacherous mountain terrain. Williams even added to his stable by smuggling more elephants out of Japanese-held territory. As the occupying authorities put a price on his head, Williams and his elephants attempted a desperate escape: a risky trek over the mountainous border to India, with a bedraggled group of refugees in tow. Elephant Bill’s exploits would earn him top military honors and the praise of famed Field Marshal Sir William Slim. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Vicki Constantine Croke has been exploring and chronicling animal life for more than two decades, tracking polar bears in the Arctic Circle, the fossa in Madagascar, and Tasmanian devils. She now covers animal issues for WBUR-FM, Boston’s NPR news station, on air (Here and Now) and on WBUR’s The Wild Life online. Her work there earned a 2013 regional Edward R. Murrow Award. She is the author of The Lady and the Panda: The True Adventures of the First American Explorer to Bring Back China’s Most Exotic Animal, The Modern Ark: The Story of Zoos: Past, Present and Future, and Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II. Croke has worked on nature documentaries for Disney and for the A&E channel and anchored The Secret Life of Animals on NECN-TV. She also wrote The Boston Globe’s “Animal Beat” column for thirteen years, and has contributed to The New York Times, The Washington Post, The London Sunday Telegraph, Time, Popular Science, O: The Oprah Magazine, Gourmet, National Wildlife, and Discover magazine, among others. *** Note: Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date.

The Brontë Cabinet: Three Lives in Nine Objects
Deborah Lutz’ current book is entitled The Brontë Cabinet: Three Lives in Nine Objects, a unique and lovingly detailed biography of a literary family that has enthralled readers for nearly two centuries, and the topic of her talk at The Mount. Lutz illuminates the complex and fascinating lives of the Brontës through the things they wore, stitched, wrote on, and inscribed. By unfolding the histories of the meaningful objects in their family home in Haworth, she re-creates the sisters’ daily lives while moving us chronologically forward through the major biographical events: the death of their mother and two sisters, the imaginary kingdoms of their childhood writing, their time as governesses, and their determined efforts to make a mark on the literary world. From the miniature books they made as children to the blackthorn walking sticks they carried on solitary hikes on the moors, each personal possession opens a window onto the sisters’ world, their beloved fiction, and the Victorian era. A description of the brass collar worn by Emily’s bull mastiff, Keeper, leads to a series of entertaining anecdotes about the influence of the family’s dogs on their writing and about the relationship of Victorians to their pets in general. The sisters’ portable writing desks prove to have played a crucial role in their writing lives: it was Charlotte’s snooping in Emily’s desk that led to the sisters’ first publication in print, followed later by the publication of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Charlotte’s letters provide insight into her relationships, both innocent and illicit, including her relationship with the older professor to whom she wrote passionately. And the bracelet Charlotte had made of Anne and Emily’s intertwined hair bears witness to her profound grief after their deaths. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Deborah Lutz is an Associate Professor of Victorian Literature and Culture in the Department of English at Long Island University. Her scholarship focuses on material culture; the history of attitudes toward death and mourning; the history of sexuality, pornography and erotica; and gender and gay studies. Her books include The Dangerous Lover: Gothic Villains, Byronism, and the Nineteenth-Century Seduction Narrative; Pleasure Bound: Victorian Sex Rebels and the New Eroticism, and Relics of Death in Victorian Literature and Culture. Her writing has appeared in numerous journals and collections, including Novel: A Forum on Fiction; Victorian Literature and Culture; The Oxford History of the Novel in English, and Cabinet. She has been interviewed by the New York Times, Salon, New York Post, Dublin’s News Talk Radio, The John Batchelor Radio Show, and The History Channel. *** Note: Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date.

The Mantle of Command: FDR at War 1941-1942
Hamilton’s talk at The Mount is about his latest book: The Mantle of Command: FDR at War, 1941-1942. Based on years of archival research and interviews with the last surviving aides and Roosevelt family members, Nigel Hamilton offers a definitive account of FDR’s masterful—and underappreciated—command of the Allied war effort. Hamilton takes readers inside FDR’s White House Oval Study—his personal command center—and into the meetings where he battled with Churchill about strategy and tactics and overrode the near mutinies of his own generals and secretary of war. Time and again, FDR was proven right and his allies and generals were wrong. When the generals wanted to attack the Nazi-fortified coast of France, FDR knew the Allied forces weren’t ready. When Churchill insisted his Far East colonies were loyal and would resist the Japanese, Roosevelt knew it was a fantasy. As Hamilton’s account reaches its climax with the Torch landings in North Africa in late 1942, the tide of war turns in the Allies’ favor and FDR’s genius for psychology and military affairs is clear. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Nigel Hamilton is an award-winning British-born biographer, academic and broadcaster, whose works have been translated into sixteen languages. In the United States he is known primarily for his best-selling work on the young John F. Kennedy, JFK: Reckless Youth, which was made into an ABC miniseries. In the United Kingdom, he is known for Monty, a three-volume official life of Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, the World War II Field Marshal, which won both the 1981 Whitbread Award and the Templer Medal for Military History. He has also written about the lives of Thomas Mann and former President Bill Clinton as well as numerous other works in a variety of fields. His film on the life of Field Marshal Montgomery won the New York Blue Ribbon Award for Best Documentary. He founded the British Institute of Biography and became the first Professor of Biography in the UK at De Montfort University. He is currently Senior Fellow at the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy Studies, University of Massachusetts Boston. *** Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date. Please Note: This lecture is sold out.  From time to time, we do receive cancellations.  If you wish to be added to a wait list, please call the office at 413-551-5100.  We are also offering special tickets for a simultaneous audiocast in the room adjacent to the Stable auditorium.  Patrons will be able to attend the tea and book signing following the lecture.

The Marquis: Lafayette Reconsidered
Laura Auricchio opens our 2015 lecture season with a riveting talk about the Marquis de Lafayette, French hero of the American Revolution, who, at age nineteen, volunteered to fight under George Washington. Based on her book The Marquis: Lafayette Reconsidered, Auricchio gives us a rich portrait of the man, fully revealed, looking past the storybook hero and selfless champion of righteous causes who cast aside family and fortune to advance the transcendent aims of liberty and justice, a man driven by dreams of glory and felled by tragic, human weaknesses. Married into the highest echelons of the French aristocracy, Lafayette became a self-consciously awkward presence at the palace of Versailles. Removed from the French army as a result of sweeping reforms, he was trapped in a gilded cage until American emissaries reached Paris seeking support for their revolution. In the American cause, Lafayette, whose only vision had been of martial glory, saw a way to reach his dreams, and seized it with gusto. Americans welcomed him with open arms, and he returned their affection fully. His American éclat was so brilliant and his enthusiasm so great that he quickly became the symbol of the Franco-American alliance that ultimately defeated Great Britain. Why did Americans shower Lafayette with so much acclaim in his own time that he remains a hero today, being named an honorary U.S. citizen in 2002—becoming only the seventh person ever granted this distinction? And why, in contrast, does his memory continue to be denigrated in his own land? During this lecture, Auricchio, drawing on substantial new research conducted in libraries, archives, museums, and private homes in France and the United States, gives us history on a grand scale, as she answers these crucial questions, revealing the man and his complex life, and challenging and exploring the complicated myths that have surrounded his name for more than two centuries. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Laura Auricchio is a specialist in eighteenth-century French history and art who received her undergraduate degree from Harvard and her Ph.D. from Columbia University. She received her doctorate with distinction at Columbia in 2000, sponsored by Simon Schama. Auricchio has been the recipient of major fellowships from the Fulbright Foundation, the Whiting Foundation, and Columbia University. She has taught at Princeton University and Connecticut College, and is currently the Dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies at The New School in New York. *** Note: Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date.

BOXFIIT consists of a 10 minute Group Warm Up, 30 Minute Circuit Training Class, 10 Minute Group Competition at end! A $30 ticket includes a spot in the class, and 2 FREE classes to The Club.

First Steps Into Storytelling Workshop
Speak Up co-founder and 16-time Moth StorySLAM and GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks returns to The Mount to teach a day-long workshop on the art of storytelling. This is a workshop designed for people with little or not any previous storytelling experience and seeks to meet the goals of a wide range of participants. While many of Matthew’s workshop graduates have gone on to tell stories on stage for Speak Up, The Moth, and other storytelling organizations, most students take this beginner-level workshop with no desire to ever take the stage. People want to learn about storytelling for personal and professional development, to meet new people, to improve communication skills, to develop their writing ability, to challenge themselves, to finally get the attention of grandchildren and colleagues, and to try something new. Included in this workshop will be: Methods for generating ideas for stories from your life experiences (you have more stories than you realize!) Games designed to generate new story ideas, develop the ability to speak extemporaneously, and apply the skills taught in the class Structure and arc of an effective story The manipulation of the forces of gravity in a story Development of humor and suspense The three lies of truthful storytelling Performance techniques The 17 Most Important Rules of Storytelling In addition to the modeling of stories, direct instruction, and interactive components, participants will be invited to (but not required to) develop a story of their own that will be presented to the class for critique.

Iris
IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life’s sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “I feel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”

Gateway to Freedom: The Hidden History of the Underground Railroad
Eric Foner’s talk about his latest book, Gateway to Freedom: The Hidden History of the Underground Railroad, recounts the dramatic stories of thousands of fugitive slaves who journeyed to freedom along the eastern corridor of the United States, and the antislavery activists who defied the law to help them reach freedom. These networks of antislavery resistance, centered in New York City, became known as the Underground Railroad. Forced to operate in secrecy by hostile laws, courts, and politicians, the city’s underground-railroad agents helped more than 3,000 fugitive slaves reach freedom between 1830 and 1860. Until now, their stories have remained largely unknown, their significance little understood. Building on fresh evidence—including a detailed record of slave escapes secretly kept by Sydney Howard Gay, one of the key organizers in New York—Foner elevates the Underground Railroad from folklore to sweeping history. The many stories of individual courage, full of memorable characters making their first appearance on the historical stage, illuminate a network of operatives both formal and informal that played a powerful role in causing sectional conflict and the Civil War. During this lecture you will hear at last the story of the courageous effort to fight slavery by “practical abolition,” person by person, family by family. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University, is one of the country’s most prominent historians. He received his doctoral degree at Columbia under the supervision of Richard Hofstadter. Foner specializes in the Civil War and Reconstruction, slavery, and 19th-century America. His Reconstruction: America’s Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877 won the Bancroft, Parkman, and Los Angeles Times Book prizes and remains the standard history of the period. In 2006 he received the Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching at Columbia University. Foner has also been the curator of several museum exhibitions, including the prize-winning “A House Divided: America in the Age of Lincoln,” at the Chicago Historical Society. His book, The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery won the Pulitzer, Bancroft, and Lincoln prizes for 2011. He is one of only two persons to serve as President of the Organization of American Historians, American Historical Association, and Society of American Historians. *** Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date. Please Note: This lecture is sold out.  From time to time, we do receive cancellations.  If you wish to be added to a wait list, please call the office at 413-551-5100.  We are also offering special tickets for a simultaneous audiocast in the room adjacent to the Stable auditorium.  Patrons will be able to attend the tea and book signing following the lecture. No visuals will be available during the audiocast.  For more information, contact The Mount’s office at (413) 551-5100.   We would like to thank Blantyre for their ongoing sponsorship and support of the Summer Lecture Series.

October 23rd - 24th, 2015  Friday night dinner thru Saturday 9:00 pm   To receive a discount code for your ticket, email the organizer:  ivy@bostonvineyard.org   FAQs   What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? The ferry for Thompson Island leaves from the Thompson Island Dock at Drydock Avenue (at the intersection with Summer Street). The Island will charter a ferry to make two round-trips for our group Friday evening, each carrying half of our attendees. The ferry ride is 25 minutes long. The first ferry will depart at 5:00pm and the second at 6:30pm. Budget at least 15 minutes time to park and/or walk to the ferry terminal, plus a few minutes to board the ferry. For those who must join us for Saturday only, the public ferry will be running Saturday morning and leaves Thompson Island Dock at 8:00am. If you take public transportation use the Outbound #7 bus, or Silver Line from South Station, and walk a few minutes to reach the dock.  If you drive, the best parking is probably the garage at 12 Drydock Avenue. There is much more detailed information at http://thompsonisland.org/events/directions/ In case of an emergency during our stay, Thompson Island staff will arrange for ferry service. Otherwise, at the conclusion of our retreat we will depart the Island in two trips starting approximately Saturday at 8:00pm.   General FAQ's: What are the sleeping accommodations? Adults will sleep in beds in the dorm rooms on the island campus. Sheets and towels are provided. Kids should bring a sleeping bag to sleep in the dorm room (ages seven and under) or sleeping bag and pillow for the sleepover (ages eight and up) - see below for details. Can I attend for part of the retreat? It's probably going to be a great time from start to finish, full of relaxation and thought-provoking interactions. So you might feel as if you missed out if missing whole chunks of it! (If possible for you, It might even be worth taking a half day off work or otherwise making special arrangements, to get to the Island for the full time. Think of it as good soul care - more time for R&R!!) If you have commitments that can't be moved, and still wish to attend for part of the retreat, let's make it happen - see below! Okay, I'm really not sure I can arrange to make a 5pm or 6:30pm ferry ride Friday evening. OR, I have serious concerns about sleep issues for myself or children with me. OR, I have commitments that can't be changed, for Saturday. Can I still attend as a Friday-only or Saturday-only participant? Yes - Saturday only registration is possible as needed. And if you spend the night Friday and must leave the island Saturday morning, you'll be able to. Saturday morning the public ferry runs from Thompson Island Dock at 8:00 am. (We'll have the departure from the Island closer to the date.) We can't change the cost of the retreat for day-only participants given that Thompson Island has already given us a steep discount. But, as for everyone, please pay what you are able to afford. Parent FAQ's: What will my kids do during the retreat? Kids will enjoy many of the relaxing activities you parents will enjoy - the 25-minute ferry ride (unless they get motion sick - then they'll survive that part!), the tasty meals, the waterfront and beautiful nature surrounding us, pick-up sports and games, and the free Ryanhood concert. During the three sessions targeting adults (Friday evening, Saturday morning, and Saturday after dinner), kids will enjoy playing or a supervised movie and popcorn hangout (two age-targeted showings), group games and activities, an island scavenger hunt, and crafts, with as much time outdoors enjoying the island as possible. High school students may also wish to attend the main sessions. Parents of very young children and babies may wish to keep kids with them in the sessions, which is also welcome. Who will watch my kids during the adult sessions? We will have a childcare team for these sessions ready to support your family having a good time. Where will my kids sleep? Kids ages seven and under will sleep in dorm rooms with their parents. Please pack a sleeping bag. Kids and youth ages 8 and up will have the option of participating in a single-gender sleepover Friday evening following the movie showing. Please pack a sleeping bag and pillow. My kid(s) have food allergies. Can the Island accommodate dietary restrictions? This answer is still being researched. They are used to having large groups of kids for overnight stays, so most likely can make some accommodations. I still am not sure this will work. Can I talk with someone more about my kid concerns? Definitely! Email ivy@bostonvineyard.org with further questions.

King Lear
King Lear by William Shakespeare July 22 - August 9, 2015 For Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's 20th Anniversary Season of Free Shakespeare on the Common, we are pleased to present King Lear. An aging king, faced with his own mortality and mental decline, tries to secure the legacy of his kingdom by dividing it amongst his three daughters. Only through loss—of status, of love, of loyalty—does King Lear learn what is truly resonant at the end of a life. Friends Section Reserved Chairs The Friends Section consists of low lawn chairs  pre-set in front of the CSC stage on Boston Common for the convenience of our dedicated and loyal friends. Reserving a chair in the Friends Section is a benefit of supporting the CSC Fund, which with grants and sponsorships makes Free Shakespeare on the Common possible. Reserve a chair in the CSC Friends Section for a performance of King Lear this summer and receive additional special benefits, when you make a donation of $50 or more.  Anyone can become a Friend of CSC! Space is limited. Online reservations can be made up to four hours prior to the performance.  A limited number of chairs will be available onsite for $50 each.  The Friends Section will open for seating 90 minutes before curtain and must be claimed 30 minutes before curtain or risk being released. All donations are NON-REFUNDABLE.  We are happy to try to exchange chair reservations to a different evening if the request is received at least 24 hours in advance or if the performance is cancelled due to inclement weather.  Black-out dates do apply.  Due to the high volume of reservations, CSC is not able to reschedule chairs if they go unclaimed.   To learn more about King Lear and to see the complete performance schedule CLICK HERE Visit us online: commshakes.org General Weather Information The safety of our audience and actors is our first priority.  Rain storms tend to move quickly through our area.  We will hold the show if we think it the rain will pass or cancel the show if the weather is severe.  In the case of heavy rain or lightening storms, we will cancel the performance. There are several ways to get the latest weather information: call the CSC weather hotline at 781-239-5972, check our website at www.commshakes.org, or follow Commonwealth Shakespeare Company on Facebook or Twitter. Decisions are typically made close to curtain. Accessibility CSC staff is equipped to assist patrons of all abilities. A limited number of tall chairs, accessible seating areas, assisted-listening devices, and Braille & large-print programs are available for each performance. Please consider sharing any special accommodations you may need. Dates for ASL-Interpreted, Audio-Described, and Open-Captioned performances will be announced in June.
