May 11: Thrown Stone Theatre Company, in partnership with TownVibe and the Ridgefield Library, present Civility at Home, a community discussion for all ages, to explore the idea of civility in private discourse through the viewpoint of two public figures from different sides of the aisle. This program is part of a series of community events Thrown Stone will present around the theme, Close to Home, building toward their third season, which features the Connecticut Premiere of Cry it Out by Molly Smith Metzler and the East Coast Premiere of Birds of North America by Anna Moench.

Facilitated by TownVibe publisher Geoffrey Morris, the panel discussion will feature State Senator Will Haskell and Harry Arora, a recent candidate for Connecticut’s 4th Congressional district. Both are known for their exemplary civility in the public sphere.

The program is also part of American Creed: Community Conversations, a project of Citizen Film in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Writing Project, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free. Please register.
