A play in three acts based on Duncan E. Slade’s life


Written, directed and produced by Lisa Moore of Harrison, Maine, this original play called "More to Come" honors the life of a Norway, Maine painter and teacher named Duncan E. Slade (1918-2013), who is being celebrated at this year's Norway Arts Festival.


The play will be performed on 7.7.17 at 7pm at the UU Church in Norway, the evening before the street festival. Some of Duncan E. Slade's work will be on display during July across the street at the Matolcsy Art Center.
