It’s A True Story.
It’s A Love Story.
It’s a Ghost Story.
Saturday, October 14, 2017
The Laurent House and the Pettit Chapel – both designed by Frank Lloyd Wright – present a costumed theatrical impersonation by Ellie Carlson of the ghost of Mamah Bouton Borthwick, the great love of Frank Lloyd Wright’s life. Mamah, for whom Taliesin was built, was brutally murdered, along with her children, at Taliesin in 1914. Ellie Carlson presents Mamah at the moment of her death, as a ghost, to tell her own story of her life with Frank Lloyd Wright. Please note this is a sensitive presentation which touches on issues that are not appropriate for children under 12. This presentation will be held at the Pettit Chapel in the Belvidere Cemetery and will be followed by a tour of the Laurent House. Pie from Upper Crust Bakery, hot cider, and coffee will be served.
Performance Times: 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Due to the small size of the Chapel, we will be holding two performances.
Each performance will be followed by a one hour, docent led tour of the Laurent House.
