Celebrating 30 Years
IN CONVERSATION with Laura Eason Interview by Literary Manager MARTI LYONS
What sparked your interest in dramatizing Edith Wharton’s Ethan Frome?
Ensemble Member Lau
I fell in love with the story, which is the most important thing. Beyond that, I read a lot of books searching for projects. When I begin to visualize the story in a theatrical context while reading, I know there’s potential. While reading Ethan Frome, I began to see it as a play in my mind so clearly and I imagined the cast exactly as it will be in our production. I had already started writing the play in my head before I finished the novel. As both adapter and director of Ethan Frome, how do you choose which parts of Wharton’s novel to include and exclude in this production? As with any adaptation, I generally choose a big, gathering idea to which the material clings or falls away. With this source text, which is quite short for a novel, I was able to retain more than I usually can from larger works. The story structure in the book wasn’t good for a play, however, so I came up with a different structure and the events are told in a different order than in the book. Beyond the guiding idea and the new structure, we did several workshops and got the play up on its feet to see what played and what still felt too literary. Some of those sections got reworked – a little less Wharton, a little more me – to make them more theatrical. We also discovered a section that needed to be filled in for character development and since it’s not in the novel, that section is composed

of my original writing. People often think adaptation is just editing, but there is often much invention involved in the transition from page to stage. Generally, the process starts being rather faithful to the novel and gives way to the piece becoming its own thing.
Ethan Frome is set at the turn of the 20th century. Are there parallels between that time period and life today? This is a story of a marriage gone sour, a husband’s forbidden, impossible love for a woman who is not his wife and a young woman’s yearning for a man she cannot have. It is about passion, lost opportunities, and desires unfulfilled. The book was written 100 years ago but the human struggles explored in it are timeless. You chose to include the narrator from Wharton’s story in your adaptation. What significance does this character lend to the play?
The story is told in first person by a character (I name him Henry Morton although he is unnamed in the novel) who is a visitor to the town and, therefore, an outsider. Henry sees Ethan at the post office and wonders what happened to leave him so twisted and haunted. Typically, a narrator is objective and remains outside the action of the story, but Henry, as in the novel, is a very active storyteller. He actually makes up quite a bit of Ethan’s story, imagining the details and filling in the blanks from the bits of information he has gathered from people in town. I think this is important because Henry’s act of telling Ethan’s story becomes an act of compassion. Instead of turning away or ridiculing Ethan, Henry imagines a deeply sympathetic story for him. I find that this act of empathy is at the heart of the story and a very moving and important take-away. Humanity would be better off if we were all able to look at others with as much sympathy, generosity and empathy as Henry Morton looks at Ethan Frome.
