Newton Theatre Company presents “Ethan Frome”
Jan 25, 2018 11:36 am | Newton PTO Council

Directed by Melissa Bernstein, Edith Wharton’s  “Ethan Frome” gets a reboot in this tender, fluid production that finally gives these well-known characters a chance to speak their minds.

Ethan’s struggle between his obligation to his wife, Zeena, and his love for another has never been more poignant; nor have the voices of the female characters or of the townsfolk ever been as vibrant.
