LaRue, Michele The Bedquilt Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Visual Arts- Crafts
=She never knew how her great idea came to her . . . so beautifully difficult a pattern could be only for the angels in heaven to quilt.= In 1906 Dorothy Canfield Fisher published THE BEDQUILT, her paean to the quilter’s craft—and to the indomitability of woman’s spirit. In her vibrant performance, professional actress Michèle LaRue brings this forgotten story to life. THE BEDQUILT’s unlikely heroine, a downtrodden, elderly spinster, is taken for granted by her New England family. Although unskilled, Aunt Mehetabel is =clever in the way of patching bedquilts.= The suspenseful story reveals her journey to admiration and self respect through her art, as over five years she painstakingly devotes herself to the realization of her ideal. THE BEDQUILT harkens back to a time when literature was written for the ear, and Fisher’s evocative prose gives Michèle ample opportunity to enthrall. In her honest and energetic performance, she embodies eight distinct characters, using Down Eastern dialect to recreate a lost era. =I was enchanted by the story and your delivery, and warmed by the audience's joyful response to a well-told tale, told well.= Artistic Director, Metropolitan Playhouse, NYC
