New Play about Farming and Fracking
Set in Delaware County, Memorial Day, 2008
Directed by Ron Nash
Produced by Ernest Schenk and the Little Victory Players
With a cast including: Leighton Bryan, Bryce Gill, Jonathan Martin, Katt Judd, Ernest Schenk, and Patti Van Tassel. 
The play is a provocative exploration of the land-use issues raised by the politics of fracking through the story of a 10th generation dairy farmer and his family in Delaware County.  The family is trying to make ends meet after their only son is killed in the Iraqi war and the play delves into the complexity of people's desire to live from the bounty of our American land in the spirit of its heritage.
The play was commissioned by NYSCA through the Roxbury Arts Group and is produced with funds from the NYSCA Decentralization Grant to the Little Victory Players through the Roxbury Arts Group and a grant from The O’Connor Foundation.  Read more

Transition Catskills proposes 'Catskills dollars,' tool libraries, and farmers' markets

Above: A design for a local Catskills currency created by members of Transition Catskills.

About two dozen people attended the first public forum of Transition Catskills, a group dedicated to making the Catskills more economically resilient, on Wednesday night at the Open Eye Theater in Margaretville.

“This was our first effort to organize a conversation,” said Jeff Tomasi, a former partner at Goldman Sachs who helped found the group.

There will be another film screening and public forum for the Transition Catskills movement on Saturday, July 26, at 4 p.m. at the Roxbury Arts Center in Roxbury.

Tomasi, who owns a second home in the Delaware County town of Middletown, also lives in London, where he first got word of Transition, an initiative that began in England around 2006 and addressed issues of oil dependence and economic instability.

“I’m not a leader, I’m a facilitator,” Tomasi told the group. “I’m not here to tell people how to live. Just here to start the dialogue.”  Read more
