A Lovely Sabbatical in England

Since mid-July, my family and I have been enjoying a bit of time in Cambridge, England while my husband completes a research sabbatical at the famed Cavendish Laboratory. For the first few months I didn’t get very much done as I needed to entertain my children in the absence of their friends and most of their toys. Now that they are both settled into a lovely primary school for the term, I have finally had a chance to wrap up some projects including the two commissions and a writing project.

Check back soon to see how Gettysburg’s latest production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee went as I attempted a new feat- costuming remotely!

O Lear Lear Lear!

I am heartbroken to report the conclusion of our most recent production of Shakespeare’s King Lear. I could out-do Regan and Goneril in my effusive love for this show (only I would be true obviously). In this one the cast and crew achieved that beautiful level of cohesiveness that reminds me of why I fell in love with this collaborative art form in the first place. It was truly an amazing show and I could have watched it many many more times. Special thanks to Director Chris Kauffman for indulging my Norse/Medieval bent in the costuming department and Eric Berninghausen for the extra time that he gave me with the storm backdrop.
