The Jacob Sears Memorial Library in East Dennis presented three performances of Jeffrey Hatcher's acclaimed Off-Broadway play "Three Viewings" on Friday through Sunday, May 13-15. Set in a funeral parlor in a Midwestern town, the play explored love, money, and loss through three witty and touching narratives. The play unfolded in one continuous performance (90 minutes) and clearly engaged and captivated the full house gathered for each of the three performances.
This production of "Three Viewings" was directed by Elsa Bastone, stage-managed by June Douglas-White, and produced by Janet Murphy Robertson. It featured three top-notch local actors: Jane Taylor of Eastham, Susan Sard Tierney of West Yarmouth, and Robert Redding of West Chatham.
The play was performed on the newly-refurbished and revived stage that in 1929 saw Bette Davis perform in "The Charm School." This run of "Three Viewings" marks the return of serious theater to this historic venue. The next major event at the Sears Library will be "Mick Ryan's Lament, a Song in Three Acts" on Friday, June 17. For more information, please visit Jacob Sears Library.
