EDITH WHARTON’S THE BUNNER SISTERS: A STAGED READING
Lenox, 4 - 5:30 p.m.
After its successful world premiere production in San Francisco, Edith Wharton’s The Bunner Sisters—adapted by Richard Alleman and directed by Anthony Newfield—will have a reading at The Mount. Inspired by Wharton’s  novella, the play depicts the lives of two unmarried sisters living and working as seamstresses in a tenement in Lower Manhattan in the 1880s. When an unattached man enters the picture, their complacent existence is upended. Sensitively adapted for the stage, The Bunner Sisters takes audiences on a dramatic journey to a not so innocent age, with many of the same problems we face today—from income inequality to the precarious status of women. $10 general; free for Mount members

THE BITTER GAME
North Adams, 8 p.m.
Basketball, block parties, traffic stops — Keith A. Wallace takes us on a ride through North Philly on a night he won’t forget. A searing solo theater piece charged with pain, poetry, and laughter, The Bitter Game blends verse, prose and sh*t-talkin’ into a stirring commentary that begs the question: what does it mean to survive while Black in America' Wallace draws on his own youth in Philadelphia to examine the effects of racism, the question of excessive force used by police, and the value of Black lives in this country.

PARAMODERNITIES
Williamstown
Paramodernities is a multidisciplinary project. It is a series of lecture-performances, or dance-experiments, generated through deconstructions of landmark modern choreographies, performed alongside contributions by scholars and writers who situate these iconic works and artists within the larger project of Modernism. Exploring foundational tenets of modern discourse—such as sovereignty, race, feminism, and nihilism—Paramodernities includes public discussions as inseparable parts of each installment. While at Williams, Yerushalmy will develop material for her installment devoted to Bob Fosse, as well as present the completed installments devoted to Martha Graham and Alvin Ailey. The world premiere will take place at Jacob’s Pillow Dance during Festival 2018. This is a work-in-progress. 62 Center
