    PERFORMANCE STUDIO
     The Girl on the Train is the story of Rachel Watson’s life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple who live a few houses down — Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her with rage. The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened. Then come the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. Rachel becomes invested in the case and trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to that same night Megan went missing.

       The Girl on the Train is the story of Rachel Watson’s life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple who live a few houses down — Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her with rage. The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened. Then come the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. Rachel becomes invested in the case and trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to that same night Megan went missing.

    Upcoming Talk Unlocks the Secret of Making Friends as an Adult

    Montpelier, Vermont: On Sunday, February 18, 7:30 PM, local author Ryan Kriger will be speaking on a thorny issue with which many Vermonters struggle – how to find friends and community, and avoid social isolation, as an adult. He will be giving a free one hour talk at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier, after which will be an opportunity to socialize and meet and make new friends.

    In an August 2017 report, the American Psychological Association stated that “loneliness and social isolation may represent a greater public health hazard than obesity.” In a rural state like Vermont, social isolation can be a particularly pronounced problem.

    Kriger, who recently wrote a book called New in Town: How to Find Friends and Community in a New City, had this to say: “When I moved to Vermont in 2011, I didn’t know a soul. But I addressed the problem strategically and developed a system that worked better than I could have imagined. I know there are a lot of folks out there in the same spot I was, and I want to share the insights that helped me so much.”

    Kriger is a self-professed introvert who has spoken on numerous topics around the state, including a recent discussion at Bear Pond Books. He has also performed stand-up comedy throughout New England and New York City, and was the founder of Levity, Vermont’s first comedy club, in Burlington. He works as a consumer protection attorney in Montpelier and teaches an undergraduate course in avoiding consumer fraud at the University of Vermont. He is represented by Upstart Crow Literary, a New York City literary agency.

      CVHHH, 600 Granger Road, Barre

      The Bereavement/Grief Support Group is open to anyone who hasexperienced the death of a loved one. There is no fee.

      The group focuses on learning together about coping with grief, with the intention of receiving and offering support. The group is informal and includes sharing of personal grief experiences. Each session is accompanied by relevant handouts, books and videos that can be borrowed for review at home.

      Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploration ofthe changes brought to our lives by the death of a loved one. We encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible. Groups meet in eight-session blocks.

      Any sharing that takes place in the group is to be kept within the group; noindividual will criticize or make public judgments about the responses of another member of the group; and all members will be invited and given the opportunity to speak in the group if they choose.

      We welcome you to drop in whenever you may need.

      If you have questions about these support groups, contact Diana Moore at 802-223-1878.

    MSAC member Kathy Shapiro and Mark Hage screen six films dealing with the history of the State of Israel and the occupation of Palestinian territory (West Bank, Gaza and the Golan Heights) that continues to the present time. Films will be a mix of documentaries and dramas with a short introduction prior and discussion following. The objective is to increase awareness of the history that has led to the current situation, and to provide space for civil and respectful discussion of multiple viewpoints. There is no political agenda to the series, no recruitment to any organization, movement or point of view. All events are free and open to the public. Donations to MSAC are appreciated. No advance registration is required. For information on the films that will be shown, call 223-2518.

    All are invited to participate in reading “”Proof”” by David Auburn. Scripts will be provided and parts will be chosen at random. Anyone who chooses to listen rather than read is most welcome. Please email any questions you may have to Nancy Schulz: SaddleShoes2@gmail.com.
    “”Proof”” by David Auburn premiered on Broadway in October 2000. It received national attention, earning the Drama Desk Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the Tony Award for Best Play. Catherine inherited her late father’s mathematical brilliance, but is haunted by the fear that she might also share his debilitating mental illness. She spent years caring for her now-deceased father, and upon his death, and feels left alone to pick up the pieces of her life without him.
