The Mount Auburn Plays
by Patrick Gabridge
During his 2018 – 2019 artist residency at Mount Auburn playwright Patrick Gabridge wrote eleven plays to be staged on the grounds of the Cemetery. The Nature Plays & The America Plays were performed to rapt audiences in the spring and fall of 2019. Now, the play scripts are available for the first time in a beautiful full-color book with photos from the performances.
The Nature Plays explore the lively natural environment, ranging on topics from the mating habits of spotted salamanders to a love story between two male sassafras trees. The America Plays examine American identity through the lens of Mount Auburn, from vibrant characters like sculptors Harriet Hosmer and Edmonia Lewis to the poignant story of refugees from the Armenian Genocide. Moonlight Abolitionists presents a swirling conversation between six abolitionists buried at Mount Auburn, performed under the full moon.
