Description

Join us for a special evening as Nancy Schuler returns to perform three new plays.

Letters Home is actually two short pieces. The first half is a monologue. Meet Margaret Griffin Carey born in 1883 (Nancy’s Irish grandmother).  Margaret tells of leaving Ireland and her days in the U.S. raising a family and then sending her boys off to war. The second half is Teresa Gargiulo Palmento (Nancy’s Italian grandmother) born in Italy in 1888, writing and receiving letters from her son, Gennaro, in the army during WWII.

The 13TH Floor is a much lighter, modern piece, full of dialogue about two ships passing in the night. Nancy’s husband, Ed, once again will be joining her in two pieces. He will play the voice of Gennaro in Letters Home and also Paul in The 13th Floor.

Nancy was born and raised in Waterbury and has lived in Litchfield for the past 20 years with her husband, Ed. After a life of teaching art and painting, she transitioned to writing and acting. Her story about Teresa, her Italian immigrant grandmother, was awarded a place at the New York Public       Library Equity Theater’s 2017 new playwrights. She performed Teresa at the Italian American Museum in New York, the Manhattan Repertory Theatre, the New Britain Museum, Shakesperience Productions, the Mattatuck       Museum and many community centers and libraries. Her trilogy, Three  Women, Three Roads, has also been performed at numerous theatres and libraries.
