The Women at the Well: Poems by Grace Bauer
Director and PSU Adjunct Theater Faculty member Sharon Rae Paquette brings her adaptation of Grace Bauer’s poem “The Women at the Well” to the Little Church Theater stage. Bauer’s poems are based on the stories the nuns taught her when she was a schoolgirl. She reinterprets the tales of those women as they go about their daily routines. Paquette has adapted Bauer’s poems for the stage, providing alternative versions of familiar Biblical stories. “Wry humor is only one element of Bauer’s illuminating re-vision as she inhabits her women in their longing, sassiness, rebellion, compassion, wavering, and triumph,” writes Carole Simmons Oles, author of Night Watches: Inventions of the Life of Maria Mitchell.
