“Maine at Work” Traveling Theater of Ideas comes to Maine State Museum
David Greenham performs in one-man show on December 11
AUGUSTA — Well-known Maine actor, producer, and playwright
will bring his stage performance to the Maine State Museum at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 11, for a one-man show, “Maine at Work.” Admission to the performance is free.
“Maine at Work” is Greenham’s newest Theater of Ideas traveling performance. In it, he combines humor, little-known facts, thought-provoking tales (tall and otherwise), material from historic sources, and perspectives from real Mainers to shed light on the present state of employment in Maine.
“Concerns about job losses are ever-present today,” commented Greenham. “But my research shows that Maine’s current angst about jobs is nothing new. Since the 1800s, leaders have lamented the loss of the fishing industry, the shoe industry, papermaking and even the ice industry. ‘Maine at Work’ explores the connections between Maine’s past and present employment picture. After the performance, the audience will have a chance to reflect on what they have seen and share thoughts about the future of jobs in Maine and the local community.”
The Maine State Museum is at 230 State Street. For more information, call 207-287-2301 or visit www.mainestatemuseum.org.
