Hadley invites families to feast on ‘The Apple’

At work in an art museum, a janitor accidentally leaves an apple behind on an empty pedestal. Patrons come along and mistake it for a piece of art. Crazy perceptions and hijinks ensue, culminating in acts of censorship and protest.

'The Apple' will be performed on Sunday, Oct. 2.

 The Hadley Fund is inviting area families to experience the fun of “The Apple,” a pillow play produced by the Wilmington Drama League. Pillow plays are a series of shows by kids for kids. This series is geared toward children 10 and under (but is secretly enjoyed by their parents, too).

The action will unfold at Kennett Friends Meeting, 125 W. Sickle Street in Kennett Square on Sunday, Oct. 2, at 2 p.m. All Hadley Fund events are free and open to the public, but tickets are required. For more information, call 610-444-1855 or visit http://www.hadleypresents.org. Event registration is available at www.HadleyPresents.TicketLeap.com.

The Hadley Fund started in 1962 when Hal Holbrook presented “A Night with Mark Twain.” Since then, many musicians, lecturers and performers have graced Hadley’s stages, many of whom became famous after they graced the stage in Kennett Square.

Notable past performers have included Martin Luther King Jr., Linus Pauling, Julius Erving, Marian Anderson, Alex Haley, Norman Cousins, Ogden Nash and Gloria Steinem. More recently, Hadley seasons have included lectures by Stephen Kress on puffins, Jerrold Post on terrorism, Linda Ales on photography, and award-winning journalists Donald L. Bartlett and James B. Steele on health policies.
