“A Woman’s Heart”: A Play by Judith Partelow

May 7, 2017 at 3:30 pm5:00 pm

Jacob Sears Memorial Library 23 Center Street East Dennis, MA 02641 United States

“A Woman’s Heart” explores the feminine spirit as it evolves through child-rearing, career, love relationships, and inevitable sufferings toward an integrated and joyful embrace of life. It features three female actors who represent the story’s heroine at different stages in her life and a lone male actor who assumes multiple roles as the play proceeds.

Immediately following the performance on Sunday, May 7, Judith Partelow will discuss the challenges and delight of writing poetry, and address the unique feature of this production: poems written on a page and brought to life on a three-dimensional stage. She will welcome audience accounts of their own writing experiences, answer questions, and sign books.

To reserve, please email

If you cannot make this special ArtWeek event, other performances (without the interactive discussion) are scheduled for Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, May 7 at 3:00pm.


More about the play: Used as dialogue, Partelow’s guileless poetry creates a distinct mood in each of the seven scenes—at times self-doubting or disquieted, at times romantic or serene. Yet there is also a richly detailed narrative thread—beginning in the 1950s and ‘60s and running through to the present day, with life events and cultural references that will likely resonate with any baby boomer.

More about Judith Partelow: Writer/director Judith Partelow is also an actor. You can see her as Diane Delroy in OFFSEASON—a 14 part series—on Amazon Prime. Her poetry chapbook “A Woman’s Heart” will be for sale at the performance.
