What ever happened to decorum? You know that pesky word defined as “behavior in keeping with good taste and propriety.” Basically, manners and respect. In this instance, I am specifically referring to how we conduct ourselves in social settings.
First, however, let me say that I am thrilled - yes thrilled - to have so many of my favorite things available once again this summer. Concerts, festivals, movies, theater, restaurants.

Tickets and subscriptions are on sale for the Fall/Winter Series at People's Light!
The series comprises 3 stage plays and a streaming film, including much-anticipated world premieres, the return of the holiday panto, and the Malvern theatre's first bilingual production.
Mushroom, a world premiere by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Mare of Easttown regular Eisa Davis, opens the series in September. Set amidst Kennett Square’s mushroom farming industry, the play experiments with language and form for a production unlike anything People’s Light has produced. November brings Alice in Wonderland, a brand-new musical panto—sure to put an extra-wide grin on your face! An exclusive film adaptation of 9 Parts of Desire—Heather Raffo’s award-winning, global theatrical phenomenon—streams online in January. In March, Brian Marable (Skeleton Crew) stars as Thurgood Marshall in Thurgood, the captivating one-man play and homage to a champion of American justice.
