Two Edith Wharton Comedies, Roman Fever and The Fullness of Life run until September 10 at Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, MA. Wharton is important in the history of the Berkshires as well as in the history of Shakespeare and Company. Bob and I first saw Wharton’s plays, adapted by Dennis Krausnick, many years ago inside the Mount, Edith Wharton’s “cottage.” There was a tea included where one could talk with Tina Packer and other members of the company. This was part of the magic of Shakespeare and Company – the performances in the house, on the lawn, the Bare Bard in the stables. The magic continues at Shakepeare and Company’s current home on Fanny Kemble Road, both in the performances of these Wharton plays and the conversations with members of the company.
Bob and I had the pleasure of talking with the company of the Wharton Comedies, actors David Joseph, Corinna May, Diane Prusha and director, Normi Noel. As always we enjoyed hearing them talk about their work and about the company.
