Opening February 12, this new work will be on stage through March 5 at the downtown Minneapolis theater, located on the eighth floor of The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts, 528 Hennepin Ave.
Audiences can explore the themes of Illusion Theater’s Only One Sophie through a series of pre- and post-show workshops, special events and educational panels.
There are many themes in this play that relate directly to how we will be remembered. I was very excited to hear about this innovative approach to audience engagement in the production, and I was delighted to be asked to facilitate one of the pre-performance events (listed below).
Saturday, February 13, 7:00-7:45 p.m.
What We Leave Behind: Ethical Wills
An ethical will, or legacy letter, is a way to document and share your values, beliefs, life’s lessons, hopes, gratitude, love, and forgiveness with your family, friends, and community. Dr. Barry K. Baines will lead a conversation about this ages old custom and attendees can begin taking the first steps toward writing their own ethical will/legacy letter before the Saturday evening performance.
Admission to this and all events are free with a ticket to the accompanying performance.
