Event Description

After its successful world premiere production in San Francisco, Edith Wharton’s The Bunner Sisters—adapted by Richard Alleman and directed by Anthony Newfield—will have a reading at The Mount. Inspired by Wharton’s novella, the play depicts the lives of two unmarried sisters living and working as seamstresses in a tenement in Lower Manhattan in the 1880s. When an unattached man enters the picture, their complacent existence is upended. Sensitively adapted for the stage, The Bunner Sisters takes audiences on a dramatic journey to a not so innocent age, with many of the same problems we face today—from income inequality to the precarious status of women.
