“My Dearest Friend – Lovers, Heroes, Scoundrels”

June 9, 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Diana Bigelow and Jim Stapleton will return to the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol to present ‘My Dearest Friend’, a performance piece by Stapleton based on the letters and diaries of Abigail and John Adams.

John Adams, our second president, and his wife, Abigail, spent much of their married life apart; John was often away on government business of one sort or another. The letters between them are a testament to their affection, insights, and originality, as well as a window into the machinations of the revolutionary period and the building of our nation. The piece includes popular songs of the Revolutionary period.

“My Dearest Friend” will be presented Sat., June 9th, 7 pm and Sun., June 10th, 2 pm
at the Lawrence Memorial Library, 40 North St., Bristol. Admission is by voluntary donation which will benefit the Library. The program lasts just over an hour with one intermission. Refreshments will be available.
