Local Pelham resident, Jane Ann Valentine will present, Clam Diggers and Mussel Suckers: Brody and Waverly, two college students on a date, share an unexpectedly tender moment while watching the sunrise over the water at City Island. Can something so impersonal as an app where you swipe right for likes lead to something like love for these two millennials?
The plays were inspired by artworks created by: Margaret Zeitlin; Liv Gus; Keith Gordon; Judith Gordon; Brynley Lazar; and Barbara Levine.
