About This Event

Gian Carlo Menotti's fully staged double feature in English. In the modern day comedy, The Telephone, Ben wants to propose to his friend Lucy, but is frustrated by the constant interruption of her telephone. ​ In The Medium, Baba, as "Madame Flora," conducts bogus séances with her daughter Monica and a gypsy deaf-mute named Toby to extract money from bereaved parents. At a séance, she feels a pair of hands on her throat and panics. Has the spirit world come to punish her, or was it merely Toby, whom she treats abusively? Unable to get an answer to this question, she retreats to the bottle. But, what will happen next?
