Remarkable Radical celebrates a dynamic, flawed and ultimately triumphant historical figure with whom modern audiences can easily identify. Wiggin has starred as Mike on the prime time series Breaking Away; in the TV movie Izzy and Moe (starring Jackie Gleason and Art Carney), as Whitey Ford in the ESPN mini-series The Bronx Is Burning, and as Warden Whittaker in HBO’s Iron Jawed Angels (starring Hilary Swank). He also guest-starred on Law and Order as lawyer Ross Sanders. In addition to roles on several daytime dramas (Another World, All My Children, One Life To Live and Guiding Light), many audiences know Wiggin from his portrayal of Kirk Anderson on the long running soap opera As the World Turns for which he garnered two Soap Opera Digest Award nominations in his 10 years on the show. Wiggin is scheduled to appear in Ella Fitzgerald: First Lady of Song, directed by Maurice Hines at MetroStage in Alexandria, Va. this winter.

Seña y Verbo Teatro de Sordos

¡¿Quien Te Entiende?! or Who Can Possibly Understand You?!

Friday, April 11 – 7:30 p.m. Ware Center – Lancaster $10 general, $5 students Using Mexican Sign Language, spoken Spanish (with English captioning along with ASL), this piece of narrative theater by Mexico’s leading inclusive theater company is based upon the actual testimonies of three deaf inhabitants of Mexico City. In a cozy kitchen, three good friends—two of whom are deaf, the other one hearing—spend an evening telling stories about three other deaf friends who are on their way to join them. Their amazing stories—some comical, others shocking, all real—introduce the audience to a fascinating culture virtually unknown to most. The play explores three different ways of dealing with the same challenge—“How can I communicate?” Supported in part by the Association of Performing Arts Presenters MetLife “All-In” grant and the National Endowment for the Arts “Arts Engagement in American Communities” grant.

Ron Jewell graduated from Belmont University in Nashville and has worked in dinner theater, summer stock and film. He regularly performs in trade and industrial shows both in and out of his Mark Twain persona. In 1994 he opened the new Performing Arts and Conference Center in Bartlett, Tenn., as its director.

Lancaster Literary Guild Lecture

The Life and Poetry of Seamus Heaney

Wednesday, April 16, 7:30 p.m. Ware Center – Lancaster $15 non-members, $10 member, $5 students, MU student free with ID Join us for a powerful theatrical reading on the life and poetry of Seamus Heaney. The 1995 Nobel Laureate in Literature and Roman Catholic native of Northern Ireland died at 74 on August 30, 2013. He was renowned for more than a dozen collections of poetry that evoked the beauty and turmoil that has defined the modern Irish condition. His lines often communicated the wild onrushing joy of being alive and made him one of the most widely read poets in the world. He became the fourth Irishman to win the Nobel in Literature, following Yeats, who received it in 1923; George Bernard Shaw (1925) and Samuel Beckett (1969). In awarding the Nobel, the Swedish Academy cited his “works of lyrical beauty and ethical depth, which exalt everyday miracles and the living past.” Perhaps Heaney said it best, “The poet is on the side of undeceiving the world...poetry tries to help you to be a truer, purer being.”
