MARLBORO- Marlboro College and the Vermont Performance Lab host a work-in-progress showing of Ain Gordon’s play “Not What Happened” on Saturday, April 7, at 4 pm, at the Marlboro Town House.

Through Vermont Performance Lab’s program, writer and director Gordon has been working with rural documentary artist Forrest Holzapfel and Marlboro College students and faculty to dig into the archives, landscapes, and architecture of rural New England communities to develop his newest play. “Not What Happened” dissects the politics of historical reenactment and raises questions about the nature of history and memory. A discussion with the artists will follow the showing.

More information can be found at www.vermontperformancelab.org. This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Call (802) 257-3361 to make reservations.
