Of Farms and Fables combines the efforts of professional and non-professional artists by engaging artists in farm work and farm workers in storytelling and acting. The result will be an original performance in October of 2011 which will engage performers and audience in dialogue about local agriculture, farming, and the future of small family farms in Maine.

We Are Reading a Play!

On March 22, Cory delivered the first draft of the Of Farms and Fables script. It is a monstrous 97 pages long, involves about 25 different characters, 2 farms, lots of family, Puerto Rican fables, fantastic dreams of dancing cows, and a GAP certification game show. On Thursday, April 14, we will be reading this script at Space Gallery with an excellent ensemble of local actors. Presented as part of the annual sustainable food event, Food & Farm, the reading will be followed by a Q&A. An integral part of our script development process, this event will help us shape the play through subsequent drafts. Please come, enjoy the script, and share your feedback!
