Original short plays rooted in local history, focusing on teachers, farmers, mischief, and life in the Southern Berkshires.

In collaboration with numerous community partners, the Mahaiwe will present South County Stories, a local history plays project. Dozens of community members have participated in story circles in recent months, sharing memories and experiences of families who have lived and worked in the Southern Berkshires for many generations. Teaching artists Joshua Briggs, Barby Cardillo, Glendon Chamberlin, Jim Frangione, Rebecca Honig, and Kristen van Ginhoven facilitated the workshops and are collaborating with community members to create short plays that focus on teachers, students, and farmers from throughout the area, as well as residents of Housatonic in particular.  Bard College at Simon’s Rock Dean of Academic Affairs Anne O’Dwyer will moderate a post-show discussion to extend the reflections and community conversation.

 
The South County Stories project is sponsored by Mass Humanities and Salisbury Trust, and is in partnership with Berkshire Grown, Great Barrington Historical Society, Housatonic Heritage, the Sheffield Land Trust, and WAM Theatre.
