A play about the TB years is coming
SARANAC LAKE — “Safe Harbor,” a play by Karen Lewis about the tuberculosis years in Saranac Lake, will not be performed but rather read from a cure porch to a small, physically distant audience.
Hosted by Historic Saranac Lake, Lewis’ play will be read on Sept. 10 at 5:30 p.m. The reading, directed by Beth Glover with actors Gabriella Gurney, Christopher H. Leifheit, Brenden Gotham and Josie Good, supports the restoration of Dr. E. L. Trudeau’s cure porch at 118 Main Street.
“Safe Harbor,” written by Lewis in 1990, is a play about two people whose lives intersect in a small cure cottage in Saranac Lake. Lewis is one of the founders of Adirondack Stage Rats, a collective of theatre artists and devotees.
Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis at www.historicsaranaclake.org/events. Attendees will need to bring their own chairs and wear masks. In the case of inclement weather, the event will move to Monday, Sept. 14.
Historic Saranac Lake looks forward to presenting additional socially distanced readings on the porches or in the yards of friends and supporters.
