Husband and myself will be visiting Down-east Maine for a the week starting on the 18th (we'll be near Augusta, in a cabin in the woods, but we're okay with visiting Portland and the like.) We would like to meet up with Maine/New England Mefites and also get tips/suggestions/recs on "Spooky New England" stuff, mystery spots, haunted houses, tourist traps, roadside attractions, fun fairs, etc. Let's all meet and talk!
And the priest took us into the sacristy and the job, of all things, was to dig a grave in the yard..."
It's almost Halloween! If you're in the NYC area, I'd like to invite you to "The Weir," a play of spooky tales from Ireland. Just $15 fro MeFite's (see "more inside" for details). "Conor McPherson's The Weir is easily one of the most celebrated new plays of the past 20 years ... Folding Chair Classical Theatre's remounting of this lovely and elegiac play is an excellent opportunity to catch a faithful rendition of this sometimes chilling, sometimes sentimental piece that appears to be entrenching itself into the modern Western Canon ... I was glad to see the script as well served as it was." -- nytheatre.com [more inside]
"a wonderful night of theater....find your way there. A solid cast, and excellent chemistry ..." -- audience-member comment on TheatreMania.com. "The Weir" is directed by grumblebee and features Evangeline in its cast. Tickets are normally $18, but we're making them available to MeFites for $15. When you order, just use the code MEFI to get the discount.
