The Jacob Sears Library in East Dennis, MA will present A Woman's Heart, a new play by Judith Partelow as part of Cape Cod's ArtSpring festival and greater Boston's ArtWeek. Performances will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 5 and 6, at 7:30 pm and on Sunday, May 7 at 3 pm. Tickets are $15, payable in cash or check at the door. Reservations are required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
A Woman's Heart explores the feminine spirit as it evolves through child-rearing, career, love relationships, and inevitable sufferings toward an integrated and joyful embrace of life. It features three female actors who represent the story’s heroine at different stages in her life and a lone male actor who assumes multiple roles as the play proceeds.
Used as dialogue, Partelow’s guileless poetry creates a distinct mood in each of the nine scenes—at times self-doubting or disquieted, at times romantic or serene. Yet there is also a richly detailed narrative thread—beginning in the 1950s and ‘60s and running through to the present day, with life events and cultural references that will likely resonate with any baby boomer.
A Woman's Heart is directed by Judith Partelow. In addition to writing and directing, Partelow is also an actor. You can see her as Diane Delroy in OFFSEASON-- a 14 part series – on Amazon Prime. She has five fiction pieces in the latest Chatham Writers @ 02633-2016 anthology (from Lulu.com). Her self-published poetry chapbook, A Woman's Heart, will be for sale at the performance.

Immediately following the performance on Sunday, May 7, Partelow will discuss the challenges and delight of writing poetry, and address the unique feature of this production: poems written on a page and brought to life on a three-dimensional stage. She will welcome audience accounts of their own writing experiences, answer questions, and sign books.
Jacob Sears Memorial Library is located at 23 Center Street, East Dennis, MA 02641.
