Cold Comfort Theater’s Maggie Goscinski will lead the group in reading 'Harlowe’ by Jennifer Lane. All are welcome to join together and listen or read aloud new plays--no performance or theater experience required. Come and revel in some new stories with us! Free and open to the public.
'Harlowe’ by Jennifer Lane: After suffering a potent physical trauma, Harlowe loses her sense of touch. When her sister brings her home to convalesce, she retreats to the bathroom and spends hour after hour languishing in the tub. Harlow is a story of sisters and bodies; it is a story of how we heal.'

We will miss you, but we are happy to have a new, efficient furnace! If the installation finishes early, we will reopen when we can.
The new furnace is part of the Belvedere historic preservation and energy efficiency grant that we received this year, and will replace the current furnace which was installed in the 1980s. The new furnace will be more energy efficient and reliable, and the oil tank will be replaced at the same time.
