Uncle Vanya @ The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre
Jan 23 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Uncle Vanya @ The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre | Pawtucket | Rhode Island | United States

On an over-crowded country estate, a retired art professor, his second wife, and the daughter and brother-in- law from his first marriage navigate mid-life crises, unrequited love, a last-minute murder plot…and each other. Delusion and despair compete with humor and hope in Chekhov’s beloved story about what is and what might have been. The Gamm is delighted to bring Trinity Rep Artistic Director Curt Columbus’ splendid interpretation of this timeless tragicomedy to our audiences.

“Columbus’s excellent, deft translation retains the dark comedy and flavor of Chekhov, while making it easily accessible to modern audiences.…This Uncle Vanya is enormously entertaining.” Windy City Times

Finding Phebe: Uncovering the History of Slavery in Warren, Rhode Island @ Linden Place Mansion
Jan 24 @ 7:00 pm
Finding Phebe: Uncovering the History of Slavery in Warren, Rhode Island @ Linden Place Mansion | Bristol | Rhode Island | United States

Although the town of Warren, Rhode Island in the 18th century was surrounded by the slave centers of Newport, Bristol and Providence, its small size has made it a footnote in what has been written about slavery and the slave trade. Building on the work of historians Joanne Pope-Melish, Ruth Wallis Hendron, Christy Clark-Pujara and Marjory O’Toole, Patricia Mues and Sarah Weed use primary sources – including wills, inventories, town meeting records and censuses – to identify the enslaved of Warren.

A year ago, public historians Patricia and Sarah presented “Warren: 34 Years in the Slave Trade” which discussed the role and profit-making of Warren residents in the Triangle Trade. This year’s presentation at Linden Place looks away from slave trading and into the lives of those enslaved in Warren. Patricia and Sarah view their research as a work in progress. Every few weeks, they find information that helps them to identify someone who has been unnamed until that time and helps them to put together fuller stories of the lives and legacies of the enslaved. They have identified dozens of people as well as those who enslaved them. From postmaster to town councilmen to justice of the peace, from farmers to ship builders to innkeepers, Warren residents used the work of the enslaved to further their own families’ futures.

Patricia and Sarah are co-chairs of the Warren Middle Passage Project, a part of the Rhode Island branch of a national organization, the Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project. They are both board members of the Warren Preservation Society.

The lecture will take place inside historic Linden Place Mansion, once home to the slave trading DeWolf family. Admission is $5, free for Linden Place members. Reservations can be made by calling 401-253-039 or e-mailing info@lindenplace.org as space is limited.
