WORLD PREMIERE MUSICAL Dogtown Common: Never Try, Never Win

never try never win

RUNNING THREE WEEKENDS THRU APRIL 17
10% of PROCEEDS BENEFIT GLOUCESTER’S ANGEL PROGRAM
PLEASE TALK IT UP!

Synopsis:
Former fisherman Abraham Wharf, now homeless, struggles with heroin addiction. It is midwinter, and he has set up his cardboard bed beneath the Babson “Never Try, Never Win” boulder in Gloucester’s long-abandoned settlement known as “Dogtown.” As he enters a drug-induced euphoric state, he edges ever closer to overdose and hypothermia. Two ghostly children appear through the trees, reaching out to Abraham. Unsure, Wharf decides to take their hands, allowing them to guide him deeper into the woods, and eventually into 1800 Dogtown Common and the home of Easter Carter. Here in her home, the only two-story house in the Commons, colorful residents of the Commons have gathered for warmth, for food, for community. Each character represents something within Wharf that leads him on an introspective journey of spirit survival. Three witches serve as a sort of Greek chorus, reminiscent of the three crones of mythology and Shakespeare’s Macbeth… here, they are the hissing voices of addiction: Dysphoria, Despair, and Redemption.
This groundbreaking inter-generational piece (actors ages 7-80) will raise the question: “What killed a 200 year-old community?” in a way that challenges us to avoid ever letting it happen again in Gloucester & Cape Ann.
Issues that are still universal hot topics today: ignorance, addiction, mental health, sexism, ageism, gossip, gender, homelessness, hunger, poverty and classism are all touched upon in this show.
Programs like The Open Door, Action Inc., The Grace Center, Wellspring, and Gloucester’s new Angel Program are all examples of how a community, through education understanding, and innovation can find healing and sustainability in ways that simply did not exist two hundred years ago. Indeed, if we knew then what we know now, and if these great organizations had existed in that time, Dogtown Commons might still be a thriving community today.
Each of the three production weeks, 10% of box office proceeds will benefit Gloucester’s newest community support organization, The Angel Program. Suggested donation $10-$30, as always, no one is turned away. Consider this show rated PG-13 due to mature theme.

Season tickets now available, just $15/mo!

This Thursday we offer significant symptom relief with the infusion of that Tootin’ Torquemada of the Tenor: Mr. Andrew Clark. Just back from an awesome Third Reiki Massage and gentle Acubeating session, I guarantee you he is limber and smood as greek Yohgurt. I just love his high energy and stylish hats. Loves to get the crowd dancin’. Might have a concussion, too.
Completing the circuit will be the lugubrious Mr. Jack Ward, on catarrh and vocalese, and the big Papi of Beverly, Mr. Andrew Jones, on jumper cables. This is never to be missed. See ya then! andy clark

Alchemy Gloucester

First and foremost, we want to say thank you to each and every person who has stepped foot in Alchemy over the past 12 years. It’s been an awesome, crazy run and you helped make it all possible.

We’re closing on Saturday. For real this time

The way people dine is evolving, and while we have lots of wonderful, loyal guests, Alchemy just isn’t a place most people can eat at multiple times a week, and that’s not our goal.

We want a space where families can dine out regularly with great food, drinks and a fun, casual vibe. So, we’re going to make that. We don’t know exactly how it will look or what the food will be, but we’re going to figure it out; and when we do, we’ll let you know.

Muck and the Mires @ Katrina’s on July 16th, 8-11pm!

muck and the

MUCK AND THE MIRES, Boston’s International ambassadors of garage rock ‘n’ roll, have been described as a blend of the 1964 Beatles and the 1977 Ramones. Their songs are reminiscent of the 1960’s British Invasion, all two minutes long and ALL POTENTIAL HITS, while their live show is a high energy blast of fast-paced, post-punk gritty garage rock and roll. They have built a worldwide following through relentless touring, radio and satellite airplay and a string of recordings, produced by Kim Fowley & Jim Diamond, considered by many to be cult classics.
