November 2011

7 p.m., Peter Fallon poetry reading, Newcomer Center 19
Peter Fallon grew up on his uncle’s farm near Kells in County Meath, Ireland. He is an Honours Graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, where, in 1994, he was Writer Fellow in the English Department. At the age of 18 he founded The Gallery Press which has published more than 400 books of poems and plays by the country’s finest established and emerging authors and which is recognized as Ireland’s pre-eminent literary publishing house. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the reception afterwards.

8 p.m., Fall Mainstage: “A View from the Bridge,” Umble Center
Set in the 1950s Brooklyn, Eddie Carbone, an Italian American Longshoreman, lives in Red Hook, Brooklyn, with his wife Beatrice and his niece Catherine. He is a pillar in the community who is devoted to and protective of his family. After his wife’s cousins Marco and Rodolpho arrive in America illegally, after escaping the poverty of Sicily, Eddie’s troubles begin. As Rodolpho and Catherine fall in love, Eddie’s love for his niece is no longer touching, yet increasingly terrifying. As Eddie’s love and loyalty for his niece is challenged by the cousins, Eddie works to retain his authority and defend his reputation. Even a visit to Alfieri, the community’s lawyer, is ineffective in resolving the brewing conflict. When Arthur Miller wrote the play, he emphasized the power of the community. Classified as a modern tragedy, “A View from the Bridge” focuses on the world of the common man and his strengths and imperfections.
Cost: Tickets are $8 adults, $5 students/seniors. For ticket reservations, call (574) 535-7566 or e-mail welcomecenter@goshen.edu.
