"The Outermost House" Theater Event features Marvin Einhorn in Cindy Cooper’s Play, a Benefit for NYNJ Trail Conference on May 20, 4 pm in NYC
NEW YORK -- Marvin Einhorn will present a special performance of “The Outermost House” by Cindy Cooper on Sunday, May 20, 2007 at 4 pm at The Culture Center at 410 Columbus Ave. on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, under the direction of Michelle Bossy. All proceeds will benefit the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.
“The Outermost House” is based on the life and writings of Henry Beston, a naturalist and author whose classic book about a year on the life of Cape Cod in 1926 served as inpsiration for environmental pioneer Rachel Carson (“The Silent Spring”).
A meditation on nature, life and the human spirit, the solo play follows the journey of a man who seeks respite in nature to overcome the effects of war, and in the “elemental forces” rediscovers his humanity and his capacity for love. Drawn from the book, “The Outermost House” by Beston, and his letters and archives, the play depicts how one man finds what is important by living simply on remote land.
All ticket sales support the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, a federation of 104 hiking clubs and environmental organizations that maintains trails in the New York area and connects people to nature.
