  • Unlaunch’d Voices, an Evening With Walt Whitman

    Thu. October 20, 2022  6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

    Unlaunch’d Voices, an Evening With Walt Whitman
    A Historical Play
    by Michael Z. Keamy

    with Stephen Collins as Walt Whitman

    Since the late 1990’s, Stephen’s performances have captured the attention of the press. It is not just the stunning resemblance to Walt Whitman himself, which many of the reviews notice, but the portrayal of the character and the essence that he brings within arm’s reach to the audience that makes the poet come to life. It is not surprising that in some reviews, the writer switches Collins’ name and Whitman’s interchangeably. A true compliment to a performance well appreciated.

    Unlaunch’d Voices, an Evening With Walt Whitman opens with the elderly Whitman on the evening of his seventieth birthday. The audience is a visitor in his room as he prepares for his birthday celebration. Whitman begins to reminisce and to question his success as a man and a poet. He tells us his work has proved to be “less than a failure….” He remembers a mystical experience he had in his thirty-seventh year that inspired him to write poetry.

    During the telling, Whitman transforms into his young vibrant self and we begin to trace back along with him the experiences that led to the creation of Leaves Of Grass, his lifetime work. The first part of the performance explores Whitman’s preoccupation with the self and his resolve to write with “free and brave thought…” We revel with him as he celebrates his body and himself and are confidants as he shares his struggle with his sexual self.

    In the second part of the performance, Whitman’s life is changed forever by the occurrence of the Civil War. It is here that he finds “… the most important work of my life…” nursing the wounded soldiers in the hospitals. Through poetry and readings of actual letters, we experience Whitman’s movement from selfishness and selflessness and his growth into a mature artist who is at peace about “himself, God and death.”

  • Civil War Ghosts Lecture with Courtney McInvale Reardon

    Mon. October 24, 2022  6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

    Civil War Ghosts
     
    The Civil War is known as the bloodiest and most violent time in American’s history – totaling over half a million casualties and a divided nation, the country saw thousands of battles. An era filled with soldiers fiercely defending their beliefs, homes and fighting for rights, young men met their ends in mass numbers and their spirits lost in the tragedy of war were left with stories to tell. In Courtney’s Bury my Bones book series, she travels to battle sites, homes, cemeteries and more of the men and women involved in the Civil War searching for stories and spirits. The Civil War ghosts lecture highlights some of the men and women involved, notable battles and the spiritual beliefs of the 19th century that have carried through to today. From legends to hauntings, there’s no shortage of fascinating dark history from the mid-19th century.
     
    Including Ghosts of Gettysburg:

    Gettysburg is considered the deadliest battle of the Civil War, a 3-day battle in the sweltering July sun of 1863 led to the casualties of more than 50,000 people. Gettysburg is an area known for their hauntings and in fact, the hauntings of Gettysburg were reported upon the soldier’s arrival to the rural Pennsylvania town. Join Courtney for a talk about the ghost stories and notable deaths of the Civil War’s fiercest battle.
