The Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt gave caregivers at home, those who chose to love, a chance to participate in what was to become the largest public art display the world has ever seen. It was also nominated for the Nobel Prize for Peace ...as well as bringing solace to Lennie’s mom.
Ahh, Lennie. He grew up on Vinalhaven Island, Maine and was an outrageous babysitter. When he was older he was one of many Grateful Dead Heads! Deborah Freedman went on this journey with panel makers for over ten years, watching isolation turn into community. These are her stories.

STORIES ON STAGE
AN HONORABLE PROFESSION
Written and Directed by Vince Knue
FEBRUARY 8th - 10th, 7:00pm
Unresolved issues are realized when an aging and retired actor shares with his caregiver memories of a dear friend from long ago. A daring phone call is made and a reconciliation is hastily agreed to. Emotions rise when the apex of their differences come to a head. An Honorable Profession is a sentimental, emotional, and funny gift to the riggers and challenges of an actors life.
PERFORMED AS A READER'S THEATRE PRODUCTION
STORIES ON STAGE ($5.00 all seats) COMING SOON!
STORIES ON STAGE is “our version” of The Moth, the acclaimed program dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of the story and the storytellers- who voices share true tales of ordinary life, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. Our shows will showcase a great range of human experience. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, we will create a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience. The audience will vote for their favorite story/storyteller and he/she will receive a prize! As The Moth so brilliantly does, our hope is that the “stories dissolve socio-economic barriers, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome challenges and see with new eyes”.
