Upcoming: The Misanthrope to Benefit Spruces

The Williamstown Theatre Festival’s reading of The Misanthrope will raise funds for Higher Ground’s work. The event will take place at The Clark on February 27 at 7pm. This article from Berkshire On Stage is a great overview of The Misanthrope and this particular reading.  As Larry Murray writes there:

The Williamstown Theatre Festival suffered its own losses as the Hoosic River flooded their prop and scenery storage facility causing severe damage. The residents of the Spruces and the staff of the Festival found they shared common ground. “Thanks to our supporters we have made great progress in recovering from that disaster,” said Jenny Gersten, WTF’s artistic director yesterday. “Jim Kolesar (VP of Public Affairs for Williams College) and I have talked about this a lot, and how Higher Ground was formed to provide assistance to the larger community, so when we began to plan our annual February play reading, it was a no-brainer as to who would be the beneficiary. It may have been serendipitous, but Higher Ground is now a major part of the community. They need ongoing support.”
