DO NOT MOVE STONES

DO NOT MOVE STONES

PRODUCED BY ANNA + MARVIN AND THE REACH PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ISLAND HERITAGE TRUST

PERFORMANCES || FRI, SAT, SUN [08/27-08/29] 5:30PM ET

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Through a special collaboration between the Reach Performing Arts Center, Island Heritage Trust, and ANNA + MARVIN, DO NOT MOVE STONES will be performed outdoors at the historic Settlement Quarry on Deer Isle. Enjoy this immersive, family-friendly production while nestled amongst towering spruces atop a granite outcropping overlooking Webb Cove, Isle au Haut, and the Camden Hills. Accessible via a quarter mile trail, the Settlement Quarry is the perfect venue to share a story of this epic scale.

DO NOT MOVE STONES strikes an important balance between uproarious comedy and moving poignancy as it grapples with two questions: what are the social contracts into which we are born and how do we respond to those unspoken rules? There will be music, movement, and a heck of a lot of laughs.

Can’t make it to Maine this summer? Worry not! A digital on-demand version of the live performance will be released in September 2021. More details coming soon.
