The Poet as Playwright: T.S. Eliot's "The Confidential Clerk"
Thursday, April 13 • 7:00 pm • Auditorium
Register using code HMA679
Sir Claude Mulhammer is keeping a secret from his eccentric wife Elizabeth - the young man he intends to make his new private secretary is really his illegitimate son Colby. While Claude hopes Elizabeth will take a shine to Colby before she learns the truth, Elizabeth has her own ideas about Colby’s identity. T.S. Eliot's comedy about mistaken identity, individual choice and destiny is brought to life by seven Long Island actors in a staged reading of an abridged version directed by Ralph Carideo. T.S. Eliot spoke of his intention to use the comedic theatrical form to embrace the audience with familiar devices in order to get them to "swallow poetry.” After the performance, the actors will be available to discuss the play with the audience. Registration required. Open to all.

Traditional Irish Music & Uillean Pipes with Luke Powers
Friday, April 21 • 7:00 pm • Auditorium
Register using code HMA431
The distinctively Irish uilleann pipes, an innovative twist on the common bagpipes, first emerged in the 18th century. Notably quieter than other pipes, uilleann pipes are powered by bellows instead of a blow pipe and feature a chanter or melody pipe with a range of two octaves in contrast to a range of nine notes on older pipes. The world's most complicated pipes, they prove to be a rewarding challenge for any accomplished musician. Luke Powers has been studying the pipes and the Irish language for over 18 years. He joins us for an evening of traditional Irish music and song, and shares some words in Irish for us to sing. Céad Míle Fáilte! A Hundred Thousand Welcomes! Registration required. Open to all.
