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.

"Is He Dead?"
Mark Twain's Long Lost Theatrical Farce: Is He Dead?

After Mark Twain wrote Is He Dead? (the only play the beloved humorist ever wrote) in 1898, it long became something of a forgotten work ... until it was finally published over a century later, in 2003. Four years after that, in 2007, this over-the-top farce was adapted by playwright David Ives, receiving its first modern staging on Broadway. Now it delivers all of its delightfully ridiculous fun on the stage of Beatrice Herford's Vokes Theatre. Is He Dead? tells of a great artist who's finally found success ... after his death. The thing is: he isn't really dead. Having staged his own demise with the help of colleagues in order to increase the value of his paintings, our distinctly un-dead hero must now dress himself as a woman in order to keep his secret alive. Cross-dressing, mistaken identities, romantic deceptions and Twain's distinct sense of satire all add up to create one satisfying story about art, greed and the fickle nature of fame.

When: Aug 1, 2014 8 PM in Wayland, Massachusetts
Cost: $9.50 (Fri, 01 Aug 2014 20 )
