Madison Public Library Presents Playwright Cathy Tempelsman on September 11


MADISON, NJ - On Wednesday, September 11 at 2:00 pm, the Madison Public Library will host “Behind the Scenes: Bringing George Eliot to the Stage with Playwright Cathy Tempelsman.  Tempelsman will discuss her experience in writing A Most Dangerous Woman which is based on the life of an outcast in George Eliot (otherwise known as famed novelist Mary Ann Evans) and will be performed on September 18 through October 12 at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey.

Tempelsman was drawn to Evans’ writing and became fixated on her controversial life.  The playwright was intrigued by biographies but was most enthralled by passionate letters and journals written by George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans pen name.)  Templesman’s research captivated her mind, so she sought every opportunity to embrace and understand the precarious actions, unconventional behaviors, deceptions and secretive thoughts of Evans (aka Eliot.)  Consequently, Templesman brought a dramatic interpretation of Eliot to the theatre in the World Premiere Play - A Most Dangerous Woman.

Templesman will also discuss her working experiences with Tony Award Winning Director, Richard Maltby, Jr.  Questions will be welcomed at the conclusion of the event.  Registration is required.  Please call the Madison Public Library at (973)377-0722, extension 2.
