Ventress Library Cultural Series Presents "Irish Voices" on March 29

 

Come celebrate the literary tradition of native Ireland right here in Marshfield.

Actor Stephen Collins performs a series of dramatic monologues, both

serious and funny, of excerpts from the works of prominent Irish writers,

poets and playwrights including James Joyce, Seamus Heaney, W.B. Yeats

and Frank McCourt. They call it the "Norton Anthology of English Literature" and yet many of the writers included were born in Ireland. The commonality, of course, is the English language but there are vast cultural differences which will be explored in this performance. A great deal of Irish writing deals with the land, the past, the church, and the changing political landscape.

Come hear the voices of Ireland brought to life!
VML Cultural Series events are free and open to the public; no tickets required. The

library and program room are handicapped accessible. For more information contact

librarian Chris Woods at 781-834-5535, cwoods@ocln.org and visit ventresslibrary.org

Here is some additional information on the performer:

 

Stephen Collins grew up in Cambridge, and received a BA in Literature from UMass Boston. After twenty plus years in a sales career, he is back doing what he truly loves - performing and teaching. Recently he has been teaching seminars on Whitman, Hardy, Shakespeare, Frost, and Contemporary Poetry at various locations throughout the country.

The newest addition to his repertoire, a one man show Shake-Scene has been met to rave reviews. He also works as a professionally licensed tour guide doing narrated historical tours of Boston. His Whitman performances have taken him all over the country. He now has eight one-man shows and six courses where his teaching style has been described as a hybrid between lecture and performance.
