Tony Award nominee for Best Play, by the author of Amadeus "Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!" Miss Lettice Douffet can't help but exaggerate the dreary history of Fustian House, one of the least stately of Britain's stately homes. But when she's caught creating outrageous stories about the house's historical past, she incurs the wrath of Miss Lotte Schon, an inspector for the Preservation Trust. Neither woman will meekly step aside as their battle rapidly turns into a devilish friendship and a series of escapades that make Lettice's original fancies pale in comparison. This hit comedy by the author of Amadeus is delectable.

7:30 p.m.@ at the Rowayton Library Lincoln at Gettysburg by Gary Wills. In a masterly work, Garry Wills shows how Lincoln reached back to the Declaration of Independence to write the greatest speech in the nation's history. By examining both the address and Lincoln in their historical moment and cultural frame, Wills breathes new life into words we thought we knew, and reveals much about a president so mythologized but often misunderstood. Wills shows how Lincoln came to change the world and to affect an intellectual revolution, how his words had to and did complete the work of the guns, and how Lincoln wove a spell that has not yet been broken. The group is open to everyone. Refreshments will be served. Copies of the book will be available at Rowayton Library. Stop by and pick up your copy.
