PUTNEY -- Next Stage Arts Project presents Kingdom County Production’s "Northern Borders" on Sunday at 7 p.m., at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill. Writer and director Jay Craven will attend and conduct a Q&A following the screening.
"Northern Borders" is based on the novel by Howard Frank Mosher. It stars Bruce Dern, Genevieve Bujold, Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick.
"Northern Borders" tells the story of 10-year-old Austen Kittredge who is sent by his father to live on his grandparents’ Vermont farm, where he experiences wild adventures and uncovers long-festering family secrets. It’s 1956 and Austen experiences the farm as a place full of eccentric people, especially his stubborn grandparents whose thorny marriage is known as the Forty Years War. Initially feeling stuck in this fractured household, young Austen plans a quick exit but ends up stranded with no choice but to navigate and endure. A humorous and sometimes startling coming-of-age-story, "Northern Borders" evokes Vermont’s wildness, its sublime beauty, a haunted past and an aura of enchantment.
Tickets are $12, available at www.nextstagearts.org and at the door. Proceeds will benefit both Kingdom County Productions and the Next Stage Arts Project.
