Comedy = Tragedy + Time, A Humorous Talk by Alison Larkin

Sunday, June 8, 2 p.m.
Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 at the door; benefits the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers and The Mount

Alison Larkin, comedienne and bestselling author of the autobiographical novel The English American, will talk about how she's used humor to turn challenging parts of her life into art - and how you can too!

Alison Larkin was born in Washington DC, adopted at six weeks old by British parents and raised in England and Africa. After graduating from Royal Holloway College, London University and The Webber-Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, she became a playwright and classical actress on the British stage. Then, at 28, she found her birth mother, who was living in Bald Mountain, Tennessee. The experience turned her into a stand-up comic. She was soon headlining at the Comic Strip in New York and the Comedy Store in LA, while maintaining her theatrical career. She appeared Off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theater club and on Broadway in Stanley with the Royal National Theatre. Her internationally acclaimed autobiographical one-woman show, from which her novel The English American springs, previewed at the Manchester Royal Exchange, premiered at the Edinburgh Festivals Assembly Rooms and headlined in at the Soho Theatre as a highlight of the London Comedy Festival. The show has been seen in concert performances around the world and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable organizations. A Vogue most powerful book of the season and Redbook magazines Book Club Pick of the Month, The English American, a novel, the audio book of The English American, narrated by Alison, won an Audiofile Earphones award and is number two on Audible.coms top ten author-narrated audio books of all time.

Americas Lost Playwright: Edith Whartons Writing for the Stage

"Wouldn't it be fun knocking about the theatres together!

-Walter Berry

Theatre played an important role in Edith Wharton's life and she remained interested in writing for the stage throughout her entire professional life. Her plays include translations and adaptations but, perhaps most importantly, a series of original dramas.These range in form from comedies of manners to a verse play to a gritty realist drama, in setting from a Catholic Church to a drawing room, and in quality from vintage to pedestrian. All offer a fascinating insight into Whartons work within the dramatic medium.

Drawing on papers from the writers archives, this talk by Laura Rattray explores Edith Whartons largely forgotten work for the theatre and its impact on her career. Plays discussed include a sensationalist melodrama, a finely tuned comedy, the most socially conscious piece of writing of her entire career, and a dramatic dress rehearsal for her 1913 tour de force, The Custom of the Country.

Laura Rattray is Reader in American Literature at the University of Glasgow in the UK. She has taught and researched widely on the life and work of Edith Wharton, serving on the executive board of the Wharton Society and the editorial board of The Edith Wharton Review. In 2013, she co-directed an international symposium marking the centenary of The Custom of the Country. She is the editor of Cambridge University Press Edith Wharton in Context (2012), The Unpublished Writings of Edith Wharton (Pickering and Chatto, 2009), and Edith Whartons The Custom of the Country: A Reassessment (Pickering and Chatto, 2010).

This event will take place in the Stable.

The Wizard of Oz was a technical marvel for the MGM studio in the late 1930s. MGM has stunningly re-mastered this timeless classic, and in this version, produced by John Goberman, the brilliantly restored images are accompanied by a the Boston Pops playing entirely new transcriptions of Harold Arlen's brilliant lost scores. Hearing Judy Garland's original 1939 vocals backed by lush, live orchestration, will transport children and adults alike. With this presentation of The Wizard of Oz on the big screen, moviegoers will be treated to the Oscar-winning film as it has never been experienced before.

Czech composer Antonin Dvorak was a long-serving orchestral string player, so it is curious that his beautiful, singing violin concerto should be the least well-known of all the instrument's great masterpieces. Flowing, lyrical and fiery, the concerto reminds the German virtuoso Anne-Sophie Mutter of passages in Mozart's The Magic Flute sung by the Queen of the Night due to its technically daunting passages for the violin's highest register. Andris Nelsons, the BSO's music director designate, offers a torrent of melodies in Dvorak's 8th symphony, in turns thrilling, adventurous and achingly lyrical.

Jerusalem-born conductor Asher Fisch leads a Romantic program fitting for a mid-summer Berkshires' evening. "I've just finished a tiny, tiny piano concerto," Brahms wrote to a friend, referring with great understatement to his piano concerto number 2, a piece as expansive and passionate as a symphony and as intimate at times as a string quartet, and performed alongside the BSO by the magisterial American pianist, Garrick Ohlsson. The preface to the score of Liszt's Romantic symphonic poem Les Preludes reads, in part, "Love is the enchanted dawn of existence," a sentiment echoed in the closing excerpts from Wagner's sunniest opera, Die Meistersinger a tale of love fulfilled.

Strauss's Rosenkavalier ("The Night of the Rose") portrays the bitter-sweet love triangle between the worldly-wise, aristocratic Marshallin, her young toy-boy lover, and a young rose, Sophie, in a rollicking comic opera that is, well, Wunderbar! The BSO's Andris Nelsons presents Rachmaninov's lush Symphonic Dances, the composer's final composition, written in New York exile but full of nostalgia for the old Russia. Ravel's Bolero--pounding, relentless, irresistible-rounds out a spectacular gala program.

The distinguished heir to a great tradition both musical and political, German conductor Christoph von Dohnanyi returns to Tanglewood with Strauss's musical joke about the German peasant, folk hero and trickster, Till Eulenspiegel. Baritone Thomas Hampson, dubbed "the ambassador of American song," performs Aaron Copland's deceptively plain Old American Songs. Beethoven's Symphony 7 rounds out a program that is in turns, dark, joyful, nostalgic and hopeful.

What They Wore to War: Dressing American Relief Workers in the Great War

In honor of the 100th anniversary of World War I, Dr. Alan Price will tell the story of three important American war charities in France and the dress (from high fashion through standardized uniforms to self-fashioned outfits)of their three extraordinary leaders: Edith Wharton, Nina Duryea, and Isabel Lathrop.

American relief workers were fascinated with uniforms during the First World War:

All the Americans are red cross and are working hard at it in a most engaging uniform. - Gertrude Stein's letter to a friend in 1915, commenting on her observations in Paris.

Each group of workers was fascinated with the idea of inventing and wearing uniforms, so that by 1917, it seems that every woman in the United States whether she was slated to go overseas or not, found a pretext for appearing in some style of uniform." - Elizabeth Marbury, theater impresario, on the appeal of uniform-wearing extending to the U.S.

Dr. Alan Price is a Wharton scholar and the author of The End of the Age of Innocence: Edith Wharton and the First World War.
