First Fridays: Reading of Fremont’s Farewell

March 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Free

– A Special Sag Harbor Cultural District “First Fridays” Event –

For adults only. Gerard Doyle will perform a dramatic reading of the 2 act-dramatic monologue “Fremont’s Farewell” by Shelby Raebeck. A renegade high school English teacher at a posh private school is on probation for “breaking the time-honored boundary between student and teacher.” In his final days, Ronald Fremont challenges his students to think for themselves, confesses his own shortcomings, and rails in profanity-laced diatribes against the status quo. Act Two occurs several years later when Fremont publishes a best-selling memoir and is invited back to the school to deliver a commencement address. With a captive audience, Fremont recounts his Lear-like descent into madness and the lifeline extended to him, until the graduation ceremony takes an unexpected turn.

Registration required.
