Dorset Vermont is a town on the northern border of Bennington County, in the Southwestern region of Vermont. Dorset is noted as home to America's oldest marble quarry, and as the birth place of Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill W. The Bill Wilson House and the Griffith Library can be found in East Dorset. Marble from the East Dorset quarry was provided for the New York Public Library Main Branch building in New York City.
Today, Dorset is primarily known as a summer place, with the Dorset Theatre Festival as one of Dorset's most well-known attractions. There is still plenty of activity during the winter, being about 30min to Bromley Mountain and only 15min to the Manchester Designer Outlets.
The Vermont Summer Festival welcomes all spectators to the show grounds! Watch the horses and athletes, shop the onsite boutiques, or plan to have lunch and a drink.
A contemporary retelling of the sardonic masterpiece by William Congreve. Set in the demimonde of the hyper-rich Hamptons, it follows the story of a good-hearted heiress who has become prey to the attentions of an amoral party boy. Can love emerge in a world where love means nothing? While embracing a language which is completely of the moment, the play faithfully revels in Congreve's gimlet-eyed questions about society.
Directly following the matinee performance DTF Artistic Director Dina Janis, will be joined by the actors and team from this World Premiere for a special audience talk back on their process.
