If you want to have a great evening of comedy and music, come to SPACE Gallery this Saturday. Mike Langworthy W’11, his co-author, and cast are doing a staged reading of the pilot of “Club 86,” a comedy/variety radio pilot partially developed in Mike Kimball’s dialogue intensive at Stonecoast.

Remember that time you passed up a chance to see the Beatles in Hamburg, or Springsteen in a Jersey bar, or Prince in a Minneapolis battle of the bands, or Tupac or Biggie, and how you hated yourself for it later? Please. Not for me, but for your own self-esteem, don’t let it happen again.

See you on Saturday!

Writer’s Retreat for Stonecoast Students/Graduates

As a service to Stonecoast community members, we are forwarding this message on behalf of Stonecoast graduate Jessica Bane S’07.


Our 15 room estate is located on three-plus acres of land just outside the city of Worcester, Massachusetts. The property is lovingly landscaped and hosts an orchard, a pond, Southwick brook, and much wildlife including herons, beavers, otters, owls, and deer. It abuts a secluded 114-acre nature preserve that includes a day cabin in the woods, hiking trails, and kayaking. The area also provides golfing and disc golfing, great birding and biking. While on the grounds one might feel away from it all, we are just four miles from downtown Worcester with its world-class museums, music halls, theaters, and restaurants.

In a separate wing of the house we have created a writers retreat; we have four guest rooms in the summer and three guest rooms in the winter. (For larger groups we can suggest nearby lodging.) Amenities include meeting and sitting areas indoors and out, WI-FI, washer/dryer, efficiency kitchen and common room, shared or private bath depending on number of guests. Help yourself to herbs from the garden or a fresh bouquet. Interested parties or individuals should contact Jessica Bane Robert at or 508 963-3133 to obtain very affordable, individualized fees.
