It's not often that you get a chance to see professional, live theatre at the Library. On Tuesday, June 11th, the Minnetrista Theatre Preserves will perform a live show for adults and teens, a thought-provoking piece about the challenges that everyday people faced during the Great Depression. Covering two separate stories in just one hour, the show, "Tales From the Mouth of a Ball Jar," finds two people challenged by the pressing need to make tough decisions that will affect not only themselves, but others, as well.
In "Bounty," a housewife must decide whether to donate some of the small amount of food she has to a local orphanage, while also feeding her own family. In "Working Man's Responsibility," a young man employed in a Ball glass factory stumbles upon a secret after-hours that could affect his life, his family and livelihood. Both stories show regular people in the midst of complex choices that are bound to have lasting effects on their own lives and those of the ones they love. This show will inspire thought and conversation about what you might do if you were in the same situation. Reserve your seat today for this unique experience.
