DAYS OF POSSIBILITIES
Monday, May 11 at 7 pm
Last Monday night, Silverthorne actors and community members performed Rich Orloff’s play DAYS OF POSSIBILITIES which drew on interviews with former Oberlin College students to depict the atmosphere and events surrounding anti-Vietnam War protests in the mid-late ’60s. This Open Forum intends to extend to those of you who participated in or viewed the performance to speak about the experience and to consider the events of the time in the light of today’s political climate.
Because we anticipate a fair amount of interest in this Forum, and because live discussion is problematic in the Zoom setting, we would ask that you send in questions for discussion and stories of your own experiences ahead of time so that we can use our time together in the best possible way. To ensure a fair hearing to all who wish to speak, we will observe a limit of 2 minutes to any one speaker, and expect that civil speech rules will be observed throughout.
To receive an invitation to the Zoom Forum, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you missed the performance or would like to view it again, you may see the recording at:
Days of Possibilities, by Rich Orloff, is a play based on letters and interviews with students who attended Oberlin College during the 1960’s. Mixing monologues and simple “story theater” scenes, Days of Possibilities charts the journey of one college’s response to the Vietnam War. Although the play is about another era, its message of hope in the face of uncertainty will resonate with this time.
