Berkshire Theatre Group's MARY AND EDITH Plays Unicorn Theatre, Now thru 10/20
Mary and Edith: Musings by Women a Century Apart, featuring Kate Maguire, Mary Mott, and Kim Taylor in stories by Mary Mott and Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Edith Wharton, will play Berkshire Theatre Group's Unicorn Theatre, today, October 4-20, 2013.
The shows are: From Where I Sit by and with Mary Mott, directed by Robert Moss; and Roman Fever by Edith Wharton and adapted by Eric Hill, directed by Kiera Naughton, with Kate Maguire and Kim Taylor.
Celebrate Berkshire women writers with an evening of stories old and new. Mary Mott will share stories of her life in the Berkshires, and Kate Maguire and Kim Taylor will perform a stage adaptation of a short story by one of the Berkshires' most well known authors, Edith Wharton. Mrs. Ansley and Mrs. Slade are old friends vacationing in Rome with their daughters. As the two reminisce, they begin to realize that the secrets they each hold about the past may not be as hidden as they thought. Based on the short story by Edith Wharton, Roman Fever explores the power of love and deception, all the while set on a beautiful Italian terrace.

The Colonial Theatre, founded in 1903, and Berkshire Theatre Festival, founded in 1928, are two of the oldest cultural organizations in the Berkshires. Having united in November of 2010 under the leadership of Artistic Director and CEO Kate Maguire, these two institutions are providing the Berkshires and beyond with the finest in Live Theatre, music, dance and the visual arts on five stages in Stockbridge, MA, Pittsfield, MA and Lenox, MA. The Fitzpatrick Main Stage (408 seats), cataloged by the National Register of Historic Places, was originally designed and built by Stanford White as the Stockbridge Casino in 1888. The intimate Unicorn Theatre (122 seats) is a home for emerging artists and new theatrical ideas. The Colonial in Pittsfield (780 seats) re-opened in August of 2006, following a $21 million restoration, and boasts pristine acoustics, classic gilded age architecture and state-of-the-art technical systems. BTG also performs at the newly built outdoor Neil Ellenoff stage at the Mount and at The Garage, a music venue located in the lobby of The Colonial.
