November 1 - November 28 12:00 am
Red Monkey Theater Group and Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum present a series of original short plays by authors Jessica Carmona, Amy Frey, and Sharon Mosley. These new works will explore topics and themes that are as urgent today as they were during the 19th century when the current Bartow-Pell Mansion was built and inhabited.
Debuting in November 2021, February 2022, and April 2022, the plays will examine immigration, women’s suffrage and rights, and the Civil War and civil rights. Each will be presented as part of a one-hour program that will also include a guided tour of the historic Bartow-Pell Mansion and a post-performance discussion.
Then & Now written by Jessica Carmona Performance Dates
The spirit of an immigrant American of the past visits a family currently living in a historic mansion. What unfolds is a message of unity and solidarity, drawing attention to the common themes of humanity that unite us all.

Masher written by Amy Frey Performance Dates
Mrs. John G. Bettancourt is everything a model, upper-class Victorian woman should be: wife, mother, and hostess. But when she finds herself in a confrontation with a “masher” (a man who assaults women on the street), she suddenly needs to come to grips with the realities of the world around her and is forced to ask for help from an unexpected quarter.
