May 19–June 11

By Peter Shaffer Directed by Benny Sato Ambush Featuring Lindsay Crouse*

“British playwright Peter Shaffer (“Equus,” “Amadeus”) has created two bastions against the decline of Western civilization in the personas of two magnificently eccentric ladies, Lettice Douffet and Lotte Schoen…” Variety
Leading tours through an obscure English mansion utterly devoid of interest, Lettice Douffet chooses to ‘Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!’ by fabricating fanciful stories. Igniting the wrath of her employer, a battle ensues that rapidly turns to friendship and a series of escapades that will surely delight. Featuring Lindsay Crouse as Lettice, this delectable comedy by acclaimed playwright, Peter Shaffer, will be directed by GSC veteran, Benny Sato Ambush. Genre British comedy Who it’s for Fans of Downton Abbey; Fans of Lindsay Crouse, Fans of The Norman Conquests (Alan Ayckbourn)

“Helping people to see is the transformative power of theatre” – Benny Sato Ambush, director, Driving Miss Daisy

I’ll bet there are many people, who read GMG regularly and have not seen any of this season’s plays at Gloucester Stage.  If you’re one of those people, you’ve got until next Sunday (9/22) to rectify that situation.  And it’s the perfect week to do so because Driving Miss Daisy is the best production of this excellent season.

Let’s start with the play itself.  “Driving Miss Daisy” was written by Alfred Uhry, who is the only playwright ever to win an Oscar, a Tony, and a Pulitzer Prize.  Perhaps you saw the 4-time Oscar-winning movie starring Morgan Freeman, Jessica Tandy and Dan Aykroyd.  If you haven’t, I suggest you wait until after you see the play at Gloucester Stage (get tickets here).  The play is much more powerful.

Gloucester Stage’s production of Driving Miss Daisy stars Academy Award nominee Lindsay Crouse (who has appeared in dozens of films, including 3 of my favorites: The Insider,  Being Human and The Verdict),  Johnny Lee Davenport and Robert Pemberton — all of whom give stellar, riveting performances.

We saw the play on Sunday with our ten-year-old son, John.  He was skeptical.  While reading the playbill before it began, John complained that it couldn’t be interesting with only three characters.  “But I loved it!” he exclaimed after it was over.  “It’s a great life lesson.”
  “What lesson would that be?” I asked.
   “Don’t be mean. You’ll regret it.”

We stayed for the “Talk Back” with the actors and director, during which Lindsay Crouse profoundly elaborated on that very concept, describing her character, Miss Daisy, as struggling to forgive herself after having pushed blame off onto others in her life.

Near the end of the Talk Back, director Benny Sato Ambush responded to a comment from the audience about how the characters faced their fears by noting the root of the Greek word for theatre is θεάομαι (theáomai, “to see”) and seeing the root of your fears helps you overcome them, saying “Helping people to see is the transformative power of theatre.”

Bravo!

Whether you’re 10 or 100, seeing Driving Miss Daisy at Gloucester Stage will be a transformative experience for you.  And if you live on Cape Ann, you can get half price tickets on Wednesday & Thursday.  Call the box office 978-281-4433!

The Retreat is a rare opportunity for people to take a break from their busy lives and experience something wonderful. It’s a chance to:

Rest and revitalize with life-changing happiness teachings from world-class teachers and master practitioners – including the amazing Lama Marut, author of A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life.

Enjoy meditation, yoga at all levels and community in the beauty of pastoral New England.

Understand how to live in happiness for six days…so you can be happy the rest of your life.

The retreat is led by Lama Marut — an American Buddhist monk whose teachings are both profound and completely engaging. He will make you laugh. He will make you think. He will probably change your life.

You can check out his podcasts – including podcasts from last year’s Summer Retreat – on iTunes.

Thanks to Joey and Good Morning Gloucester for supporting the Summer Retreat!

In this complex, frightening time, each day we’re anxious scared, and tense.
We worry that our fears will hurt our health, and run in circles looking for relief.
There’s just no place to rest.

These five days are tailor-made for this.
Being silent is an act of kindness to yourself, and meditation is a place to rest.
But finding peace is not for you alone. Above all it can be a way to live.
