Q&As with Sofia Bohdanowicz and Deragh Campbell on March 30 & April 1. Léo Richard in person on March 30 & April 1.
In Sofia Bohdanowicz and Deragh Campbell’s clever comedy, a young woman (Campbell, a wryly hilarious leading lady) tasked with executing the estate of her great-grandmother, a renowned Polish poet, takes a trip to Harvard University to research a correspondence between her deceased relative and another poet who seems to have been her lover. What initially seems a purely scholarly investigation into her family’s literary history proves a lightning rod for the various disputes, resentments, and tensions bound up in the business of enhancing a family member’s legacy. Bohdanowicz and Campbell push the narrative in ever-amusing directions without relinquishing artistic restraint and delicacy of touch.
