Visitors are invited to a play entitled Inside the Writer’s Studio in which Peter Parley interviews Maurice Sendak, Ridgefield’s most famous author. The interview will focus on how different the two authors were due to their time periods, but also how much the two men had in common.
Portraying Peter Parley will be Ms. Samantha Kulish Fargione, program coordinator for the Norwalk Historical Society and director of the Crystal Children’s Theatre in Norwalk. Taking on the role of Maurice Sendak is Dr. Darla Shaw, professor of education at Western Connecticut State University, local storyteller, and reenactor.
This event takes place at the Peter Parley Schoolhouse, located at the intersection of West Lane and South Salem Road (CT Route 35) in Ridgefield. For more information, visit ridgefieldhistoricalsociety.org or call 203-438-5821.
