“A Song in the Wilderness" to be performed at CAT Theatre

Date: May 13, 2017

Time: 8 p.m.

Price: $12

Description: Actor Kerrigan Sullivan will present “A Song in the Wilderness,” a 45-minute one-woman show that offers a dramatic exploration of the life and experiences of Gene Stratton-Porter, at 8 p.m. at CAT Theatre, 319 N. Wilkinson Rd.

Born in 1863, Stratton-Porter was an accomplished writer of fiction and non-fiction. She was also a celebrated nature photographer and an early naturalist. She was one of the first women to form a movie production studio.

“A Song in the Wilderness,” written by Larry Gard, was first produced in 1993 as part of the annual Performances in the Humanities program of the Indiana Humanities Council, and starred Marcia Quick Gard as Gene Stratton-Porter. The show toured Indiana under the same banner during the spring of each year, through 1997. It was also produced for a festival about women in science at the Science Museum of Virginia in 2002, featuring the same actress. The 2017 production is offered in memory of Marcia Quick Gard, who passed away on Dec. 16, 2016.

Tickets are $12. The performance will include a reception and talk back with the production staff after the show. For tickets and details, visit www.cattheatre.com.
