Let's find our way
June 5th-June 27th, 2021
Wellesley Girl has been rescheduled to June, 2021
It is 2465. American Politics hasn't changed much. Except that "America" is now only a handful of New England towns in a walled-in citadel due to a global environmental disaster. The population is so small that everyone is a member of Congress. An unidentified army has encamped at the border. All members of Congress must move beyond personal agendas and petty bickering and decide the nation's fate. And it is snowing.
This is a play about politics, and like politics, it's funny until it suddenly isn't.
In effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Compass Theatre, with the support of the Board of Directors, has made the decision to postpone the production of Wellesley Girl for a full year. We make this decision with protective hearts for our community and artists.
It is often said that "Art Imitates Life." No truer words could be said for the story of Wellesley Girl as the play directly addresses so many of the issues we are grappling with right now due to COVID-19. Join us on this journey in 2021 and together we will discover how to navigate our new world.
