This program of two vibrant, vintage stories plus a revealing lecture is performed exclusively by Michèle LaRue, a professional actress specializing in tales from America’s Gilded Age. “The Bedquilt,” based on a short story by Dorothy Canfield Fisher, recounts the suspenseful journey of an unlikely heroine: an elderly spinster, taken for granted by her New England family – but “clever in the way of patching bedquilts.” Introducing “The Bedquilt” is the gleeful account of “A Quilting Bee in Our Village,” written by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman. In Freeman’s little town, good food, gossip, and games make a successful bee—even when they go awry. LaRue embodies 10 distinct characters in this dramatization. The program concludes with Fisher’s surprising description of how she wrote “The Bedquilt.” 70 min. plus Q&A.
