Meet a Flatlander'

Written by Katy England
Mark Ricketts releases A Flatlander's Guide to Maine,' release party on May 14

BANGOR Mark Ricketts of Moose Mountain and Earl Hornswaggle fame has a new book coming out, 'A Flatlander's Guide to Maine,' which features not only some of the greatest hits from the aforementioned cartoons and writings, but new content as well. 

There's many people who would never guess that Mark Ricketts was from 'away.' He's captured a lot of the spirit of Maine in his cartoons, illustrations and writings. Originally from Arkansas, Ricketts and his wife moved to Maine from Chicago, trading in the big city for a more small town feel seven years ago.

ELLSWORTH - James Graham's biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed new political play 'This House' will be broadcast live from London to The Grand screen on Thursday, May 16 for one performance at 2 p.m. NT LIVE is The Grand's series of high-definition simulcast performances from The National Theatre of London.

It's 1974, and the corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain's political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling party holds on by a thread. Votes are won and lost by one, fist fights erupt in the bars, and ill MPs are hauled in to cast their votes. It's a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and age-old traditions and allegiances are thrown aside in the struggle for power. Graham's new play strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules, to maneuver a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.

Only 19 sisters remain they survived due to being off playing Bingo. A handful of the survivors have thus taken it upon themselves to put on a show in an effort to raise funds to pay for the burials of their fallen sisters.

Local writer wins playwriting award

Clauder Competition names 'One Blue Tarp' Best Maine Play

ORONO Capturing the spirit of a place on the page can be an arduous task. Doing so by writing a play is even more so. 

This makes 'One Blue Tarp,' a play written by Orono resident Travis Baker, even more impressive. Not only has he created a nuanced piece exploring the nature of relationships here in Maine particularly the notion of people 'from away' but he has done so from a smartly skewed perspective that mines equal parts humor and pathos from those relationships.
