Featuring: Tim Thibodeau, Kate Teichman, Casey Seymour Kim, and Stuart Wilson. Next up, Cuddle Party hits the Wage House for the first time! Cuddle Party is a group of best friends and an improv troupe! Formed out of mutual love of chain restaurants and giving hugs, the Cuddlers have performed since 2013 across New England. Their original form, The Bloomin’ Onion, has been showcased at the Hartford Improv Festival, Boston Comedy Arts Festival, The Providence Improv Fest, and Del Close Marathon.

From a single audience suggestion, a never-before-seen musical will come to life complete with fully improvised songs! It’s kind of like Hamilton! only not as much historical accuracy and tickets are 2865% cheaper!
7:30 pm - 9:15 pm
Kate Hamill’s adaptation Pride & Prejudice revels in Jane Austen’s brilliant wit, and reveals her talents as an armchair anthropologist, one whose characters deftly and hilariously demonstrate that while sexual attraction and emotional compatibility may be credited with initiating the course of a romance, its success or failure will likely be determined by a combination of economics, family structure, marriage law, and social theories of gender-determined behavior (however dubious). And while we may think ourselves less encumbered by societal strictures than were Austen’s heroines, Hamill’s distillation gives us plenty of opportunity to recognize the absurdities of unspoken expectations and cultural contradictions that characterize our own 21st century norms of courtship.
Join us as Providence Public Library Program & Exhibitions Director/Trinity Rep Conversationalist-in-Residence Christina Bevilacqua moderates a discussion with Wage House founders Casey Calderiso and Kate Teichman, anthropologist Lina Fruzzetti, artist Annu Palakunnathu Matthew, poet Sussy Santana, and others about women defying expectations, flouting conventions, entertaining possibilities, indulging desires, laughing wantonly, and daring to improvise.
