The America Plays, the second series of site-specific short plays by Mount Auburn Cemetery’s Artist-in-Residence, Patrick Gabridge. These five plays present a journey through the American experience, highlighting the drama and philosophies of the men and women who struggled to find their place in this nation as the American identity was being formed. Hear the voices of sculptors Edmonia Lewis and Martin Milmore; strong women like Harriot Kezia Hunt and Charlotte Cushman who sought new opportunities beyond the social norms of their time; and an immigrant story highlighting some of Mount Auburn’s Armenian “residents” and the community concentrated in Watertown. A moderated discussion with the playwright, director, actors or an expert on a person or topic explored in the plays will follow each performance.
