A.C.T. Presents “Bell, Book and Candle” by John Van Druten
It’s Halloween Season: Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over a publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads to a number of complications. Performances Oct. 4 - 20: Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sundays at 3:00 p.m. A.C.T. Studio Theatre, Cedar Pointe Plaza, 2399 SE Ocean Blvd., Stuart. Tickets $25. For tickets and information please call (772) 932-8880 or visit actstudiotheatre.com
A.C.T. Studio Theatre presents Native American Film Screening: “Neither Wolf Nor Dog”
Adapted from the Best-selling Native American novel by Kent Nerburn, Film-maker Steven Lewis Simpson opted to bypass traditional film distributors. “Neither Wolf Nor Dog” became the most successful self-distributed movie of 2017 in the U. S. and the most successful non-Hollywood Native American-themed film in years. No other novel is acknowledged as so successfully bridging the gap between white America and the Native American world.
Kent Nerburn, a goodhearted white American writer, receives a mysterious phone call asking him to meet an old man on a distant Indian reservation. Despite misgivings, Kent travels across the Great Plains to the sparse lands of the Dakotas to connect with Dan, a 95-year-old Lakota elder. Dan’s clapboard shack sits on a bleak and poverty stricken reservation. Dan interrogates Kent as to his motives for working with Natives. Satisfied, Dan hands Kent a shoebox full of notes and tells him to turn them into a book.
Kent is struck by the profound insights about American history and culture from the Native perspective. As the stories pour from Dan, Kent’s understanding of the world is turned upside down. An inanimate landscape comes alive; a history he thought he knew is called into question.
