Theatre for Good Brings “Our Town” Back to Our Town,
by Lindsey Turner
The incredible playwright, Molly Smith Metzer, currently one of the top TV writers in Hollywood, has granted Theatre For Good the rights to bring the Hartford Stage cast of NYC actors to the Litchfield Hills – this just doesn’t happen!
Litchfield County native, actress Caroline Kinsolving, started Theatre for Good (TFG) a year and a half ago because she saw Litchfield County was so full of talented and cultured people, those who thirst to perform and those who crave to experience.
“I’ve asked myself how I can help the world in whatever small way I can. I wanted to do something selfless with my free time that would benefit the community and, therefore, the world. I believe everyone can contribute in small or large ways and that goodness spreads in more ways than one,” Kinsolving said.
Kinsolving saw two beautiful venues she could welcome the public to and help support — the theatre at Washington Montessori School where she is an alumna, and The Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens.
On April 20th and 21st TFG performed Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” at the Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens in Washington, CT. “I’ve loved this play for a long, long time and the first time I saw it, I felt like I was watching a play about everything I love about living in this area,” Kinsolving said. The group raised $1,007 over the weekend that was donated to the Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens and the Washington Community Fund.
