The curtain goes up twice in July for the Glen Arbor Players (GAP). On July 20-21, GAP performs Leland playwright Priscilla Cogan’s new work, “The Summer Cottage,” at 7:30 pm at the Leelanau School, 1 Old Homestead Road, just north of Glen Arbor. Cogan’s work, a comedy-drama, brings four generations of women to a lakeside cottage where they confront a range of persistent issues and old ghosts. “The Summer Cottage” is built around adult themes, such as abortion, spirits and sexuality, and is rated PG-13.
A week later GAP mounts “The Diaries of Adam and Eve,” an adaption of two Mark Twain stories about a couple in Paradise. The performances are July 27-28 at 7:30 pm at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church, 4902 W. MacFarlane Road, in Burdickville. “Diaries” is a witty, charming work in which Mark Twain retells the Garden of Eden story in the first person, in diary form, from the perspectives of a grouchy Adam, and Eve, a curious experimenter.
Both GAP productions are free. No reservations are required. GAP is a project of the Glen Arbor Arts Center. For more information visit GlenArborArt.org.
