About Wayland
map
Located to the west of Boston, Wayland was originally settled as part of the Sudbury Plantation in 1673. Although incorporated during the year 1780 it was not founded as a town until 1835.

The town was named after a woman by the name of Francis Wayland who started the first free public library in Massachusetts in the year 1848, and was also a preacher and president of Brown University.

The town attractions include the Ground Herd House as well as the Depot which is a small shop in an old train station. Wayland also includes one of the best school systems in the state of Massachusetts.

Foreign Film Series - Loose Cannons

A man discovers it's harder to scandalize his family than he expected in this comedy. Vincenzo has devoted most of his life to building up the successful pasta company founded by his grandfather, and now that he's getting older he plans to hand over the business to his sons, Antonio and Tommaso. While Antonio has been working at Vincenzo's side for years, his brother has been living in Rome with his boyfriend. Tommaso's parents don't know that he's gay and uninterested in the family business. When Vincenzo wants a family meeting to discuss his future role, Tommaso comes up with a plan -- he'll tell his parents that he's gay, and they'll be so shocked they'll hand the reigns over to Antonio.or so he thinks.

Getting the most out of your visit with your doctor

Good communication lies at the foundation of the patient-doctor relationship and is vitally important for good health outcomes. And yet, the ever-increasing pressure on physicians to do more in less time undercuts the quality of this communication, putting patients at risk.

In his talk, Dennis Rosen, M.D., author of Vital Conversations: Improving Communication Between Doctors and Patients, will discuss some of the reasons why this communication often founders and will offer concrete suggestions on how you can get the most out of visits with your doctors.

Dennis Rosen, M.D. is a pediatric pulmonologist at Boston Children's Hospital and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Rosen writes regularly for the medical press as well as for The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and The Pacific Standard. His book, Vital Conversations: Improving Communication Between Doctors And Patients was published in 2014 by Columbia University Press. His website, dennisrosenmd.com, is devoted to improving the quality of communication within our medical system to achieve better results, lower costs, and greater satisfaction for all involved. He lives in Newton with his wife and three children.

"Cyrano de Bergerac"
Cyrano de Bergerac Has a Nose for Romance & Adventure

Sometimes the love you seek is right under your nose. Edmond Rostand's beloved romantic comedy about a nobleman whose gift for romance is overshadowed by his all-too-prominent schnoz breezes into Beatrice Herford's Vokes Theatre with Cyrano de Bergerac, an enduringly endearing masterwork that speaks as directly to the heart today as it did more than 100 years ago. This show has it all: beautiful costumes from the era of the Three Musketeers, a passionate balcony scene, romantic lines that touch the heart, the bustle and swirl of Paris nightlife it its heyday, and a valiant sword fight. Don't miss this epic tale that has thrilled audiences around the world.
