Blue Monday by Meridith Friedman
directed by Adrienne Boris
Tuesday, March 15 at 6:30pm
hosted by Watertown Public Library, in partnership with the Playwrights’ Reading Room
An aspiring oil painter is devastated when her husband, a talented poet and her former professor, develops Semantic Dementia. As he begins to lose the semantic meanings of words and objects, painting becomes a way for him to recall mental pictures without the mediation of language. A silent rivalry soon develops as his paintings start to garner attention.
Playwrights’ Reading Room brings readings of exciting new plays to local libraries, providing communities with access to new work and playwrights with development opportunities.
This program is funded in part by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
