2017 Beaver Queen Pageant @ Duke Park
Jun 3 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Beaver Queen Pageant is Durham’s own special mix of folly, pageantry and humor. Contestants take on beaver personalities and compete for the title of Beaver Queen with their fashion, talent and personality. The theme for the 13th annual Beaver Queen Pageant is ‘Wizard of Gnawz’. Come enjoy the fun at this family-friendly and free event which raises funds for the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association. Vote for your favorite contestants – or bribe a judge – at www.beaverqueen.org. Emcee’d by WUNC’s Frank Stasio, this is a truly weird and delightful Durham experience.

Honour by Joanna Murray-Smith @ Ward Theatre
Jul 22 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Honor has navigated the ups and downs of marriage with her husband Gus for 32 years.  Despite a promising career as a poet, she set aside her ambitions to support Gus and their daughter Sophie. When Gus betrays her and moves in with a woman half his age, Honor is left to reinvent herself.

In a series of intense confrontations, Honor, Gus, his lover and their daughter negotiate the forces of passion, lust, responsibility and honor.  These interactions are told in a distinctly original way, using theatrical language that is darkly comic, highly poetic and uncomfortably familiar.
