This Opera House Arts production, to be performed August 16-26, is based on the short stories of Ruth Moore. Hailed as “New England’s only answer to Faulkner,” beloved Maine author Ruth Moore filtered personal and family histories through her vibrant imagination to create masterful snapshots of life in Maine. Her intimate knowledge of those living and working on the islands Down East gives her wide-ranging stories an authentic voice. Through the struggles and triumphs of the characters who fill them, we see a world that is completely of its time and also surprisingly contemporary.
This summer, these portraits leap off the page and onto the Opera House stage in a celebration of story-telling and place that is touching, funny, sometimes nostalgic, and always vividly alive.
