Talkback and Q&A following the matinee
One-Third of a Nation was written in 1938
by Arthur Arent as part of the
Federal Theatre Project’s “Living Newspaper” unit. The Living Newspaper was
designed to create jobs for out-of-work journalists, actors, and other
theater professionals by telling stories that were “ripped from the
headlines.” Though the narrator reminds the audience early on that this
isn’t a specifically New York story, the action takes place exclusively
in the city, beginning with a devastating tenement fire at 397
Madison Street, then taking the audience on a multimedia journey
through the city’s housing history. The play was the Living Newspaper's
biggest success and versions were produced around the country.

On Sunday, April 29, we joined director Alex Roe and the cast for a special talkback following a performance of Edith Wharton’s seldom-seen adaptation of her own novel, The House of Mirth. The play tells the story of social climber Lily Bart who is torn between her desire for money and her attempts to navigate the treacherous waters of New York high society in the 1890s.
The play debuted on Broadway in 1906 (just one year after the novel became an overnight success) and masterfully condenses the action of the book for the confines of the stage.
