Special Vermont Presentation!

The Tarnation of Russell Colvin
Written and performed by Oliver Wadsworth
Directed by Kirk Jackson
June 8 – 10

Based on Manchester’s very own unsolved murder case of 1812, local history comes alive in this one-man virtuosic tour-de-force. Oliver Wadsworth portrays a motley medley of characters as they grapple with the slippery truth of the real life murder of Russell Colvin, an eccentric Vermonter whose ghost haunted the town of Manchester til; the malefactors were brought to justice and sentenced to hang.

This small-town murder mystery remains unsolved today.

The Tarnation of Russell Colvin is underwritten by Vermont Community Foundation and The Samara Fund with support from Bennington College.

Thurs. 6/8 7:30 PM
Fri. 6/9 7:30 PM
