Margo Petitti @ Dovecote Style
Oct 27 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Margo Petitti, Inc. was founded in 2009 from an array of menswear swatches on a sewing table in Providence’s historic College Hill. Margo handmade her first patchwork style scarf from cloth that she clipped from swatch books that a local tailor shop was discarding. She designed the scarf on the floor of her room and stitched it for her father for Christmas. He received many compliments and she received many requests. After that Christmas, Margo took a leave of absence from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she had been working toward an MLA, to launch her venture.
Margo’s collection of scarves, neckwear, pocket squares, caps, pillows and throws marry glen plaids, herringbone, houndstooth and birdseye weaves into one of a kind accessories. She manufactures in Fall River, Massachusetts and Italy, from the finest Italian woolens, silks and cashmeres. Truly a gift of elegance.

Perfect Arrangement @ Raleigh Little Theatre
Oct 27 @ 8:00 pm – Nov 12 @ 3:00 pm

“Perfect Arrangement” (Dark Comedy), by Topher Payne.

It’s 1950, and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover-up. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American Gay Rights Movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All-American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door.
