Visit MIDDLETOWN this weekend!

Join these tourists and check out the town of
Middletown this weekend!
Support our colleagues and their students at Rhode Island College this weekend - Their first show of the 2017-2018 season opens this Thursday!

Middletown is a deeply moving, funny new play that explores the universe of a small American town. As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge and new arrival Mary Swanson, the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points between.
