If you are looking for something fun to do on the Outer Cape–check out WHAT in Wellfleet. WHAT, the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater produces wonderful show throughout the year. During the summer, they feature live plays on two stages–the older Harbor Stage on Kendrick by the Bookstore and the newer Julie Harris Stage on Route 6 next to the post office. In July and August, they also produce a popular kids show under the tent on Route 6 most evenings.
Last weekend, we saw “Bakersfield Mist” on the Julie Harris Stage. It was a wonderful show–one act, two characters–very thought-provoking. The play is based on the true story of Teri Horton, a retired trucker who buys what could be an authentic Jackson Pollock at a thrift shop in California. the characters are a bit different–but the story is basically the same. On a side note, if you haven’t heard about Teri Horton’s story, check out the documentary, “Who the #$&% is Jackson Pollock“.
If you are an art lover–you’ll love the show–you’ll like it even if you aren’t. It runs now through Labor Day Weekend.
