Events

We periodically hold special events at the Manor House, including plays, book readings, workshops, and opportunities to learn about unique programs. Please check periodically for updates. If you would like us to host or organize an event for you--knitting circle, murder mystery dinner, scrapbooking sessions, big chill weekend, and yes, tea parties. Just let us know and we would be happy to do so. Below are examples of two of our recurring events:

Eclectic Chair Playhouse

New York City playwright and actress, Susan Stein performs excerpts from her one-woman show, "Etty".  The play is directed by Austin Pendleton (Finding Nemo, My Cousin Vinny, Guarding Tess, and Steppenwolf). "Etty" brings the audience into the life and thought of Etty Hillesum, a young woman in Holland who was committed to sustaining humanity in the face of Nazi brutality. It is a moving testament to the triumph of the human spirit. Ms. Stein has performed the play in theaters around the world and in public schools, assisted living facilities, and prisons where she also conducts writing workshops. The play and workshops have proven to be great vehicles for discussions about confinement, race, gender, and resistance, encouraging the audience to open their minds to different perspectives. As Kayla, a high school student wrote to Susan after seeing the play:

"...There are very few points in a person's life where there is a moment or memory that they will remember as long as they live. If it is just one line of a book, a poem, or a play. Just one scene or picture that will change them. These moments shatter then rebuild our perspectives...I am happy to say that watching you perform Etty was one of those moments for me."

In addition to the performance, Susan discusses and answer questions about her project. For more information about "Etty" the play or Etty Hillesum, go to: http://www.ettyplay.org/ Seating is limited so reservations are required.


A Valentine's Weekend Event

Join us for a chocolate themed Valentine's Day weekend during which we'll serve chocolate snacks, beverages, and breakfast items and options for those who (gasp) do not like chocolate. We are also going to have a meet cute story contest that weekend in which guests at the B&B will be invited to submit an essay of up to 220 words describing how they met their significant others. We ask that guests not use names in the essay because we will reprint them and ask other guests to read and rank the essays according to their "meet cuteness factor". There will be a grand prize and runner up prizes for all submissions because we believe all our guests are winners!
