Cloudburst is a 2011 Canadian-American adventure comedy-drama film by American-Canadian writer and director Thom Fitzgerald, staring Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker. The film is an adaptation of Fitzgerald's 2010 play of the same name. The film's cast also includes Kristin Booth, Ryan Doucette, John Dunsworth, and Jeremy Akerman. Stella and Dotty are a lesbian couple from Maine who embark on a Thelma and Louise-style road trip to Nova Scotia to get married after Dotty is moved into a nursing home by her granddaughter.
Come join us in our third year of monthly meditation. Newcomers and Old Pro’s alike are welcome. Give yourself an hour of peace and tranquility, and some tools to take into your life which can help reduce stress, relax the nervous system and support your sense of well being. Facilitator Anthony Smokovich presents monthly “themes” during the meditations and takes participants into a “guided journey” which often prove healing and deeply nourishing. No experience needed, just an open heart and a willingness to let go of old patterns that no longer serve you.
Anthony Smokovich is a Transformational Counselor with a private practice in New Canaan, CT.

A Song at Twilight: May 1
In his long career, Sir Hugo Latymer has achieved more than most writers even dream of-money, fame, and a reputation beyond reproach. But his carefully constructed ivory tower is imperiled when a long-ago love threatens to shed a very public light into the most scandalous corner of his private past, a revelation that could bring it all tumbling down. In this exquisite battle of wits, playwright Noël Coward explores the nature of passion, the cruelty of love, and the price of the secrets we keep.
A Song at Twilight runs for 90 minutes and will be performed without an intermission.
