Excited for "Frost Warnings"

As literary advisor to Oldcastle's initial production of "Frost Warnings," I was thrilled to learn that on Saturday, March 19, Eric Peterson and Daryl Kenny will be performing their original roles in a revival of the script that Eric wrote about the marriage of Robert and Elinor Frost.

On stage, the audience will see a man and a woman bring to life the tempestuous yet loving relationship between Frost and Elinor, aided by the poetry that Frost wrote during their years together.

Because the first staging of the play was funded by a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council to the Friends of Robert Frost, we were required to ask the audience for evaluations. The response was overwhelmingly positive. One wrote, "Frost, his life and his poetry came alive for me.' Others said "I had never understood Frost's poetry this well before I saw this show" and "It was instructive, educational and entertaining."

The one-time only performance begins at 7:30 p.m. and is a fund raiser for Oldcastle, Bennington's one and only non-profit professional reparatory theatre. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
