    Drawing on papers from the writer's archives, this talk by Laura Rattray explores Edith Wharton's largely forgotten work for the theatre and its impact on her career. Plays discussed include a sensationalist melodrama, a finely tuned comedy, the most socially conscious piece of writing of her entire career, and a dramatic dress rehearsal for her 1913 tour de force, The Custom of the Country. This event is $10 for the general public and free for Mount members.
