Join us for a panel conversation with The Cherry Arts Director Samuel Buggeln, Wharton Studio Museum Director Diana Riesman, and the creative minds behind the original headphone walking plays Storm Country and The Missing Chapter, which are back now at Stewart Park – perfect entertainment for these days of distance.
Storm Country immerses audiences in a world of voices, music, and environmental sounds as they travel among the ghosts of Ithaca’s West End. Storm Country interweaves strands of the 1910 melodrama Tess of the Storm Country with the hidden histories of the neighborhood where they happen, and explores issues that remain as vital in today’s Ithaca as they are in the novel: finding home and being denied it, trespassing and the need for security, the power of the water to transform and be transformed.
The Missing Chapter introduces audiences to Wharton Studio’s popular 1916 serial Beatrix Fairfax and its heroine, an advice columnist for the lovelorn… and amateur sleuth. As Beatrice solves crime in the heady days of the women’s suffrage movement, we stroll through Stewart Park and investigate “missing chapters” in the history of our own community.
