Join professional and community artists for Play of Delights, the culmination of a four-month intergenerational theater project involving performers of all ages from Ithaca and Trumansburg. 

The performance will feature essays inspired by The Book of Delights by award-winning author Ross Gay brought to life as dance theater and original work. Afterward, we will celebrate with a potluck and bonfire. We welcome you to dress with delight and bring something delicious to share!

Play of Delights is supported by a Humanities New York Action Grant, the Cornell Rural Humanities initiative from an award by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, a grant from the Triad Foundation, Inc., and rehearsal space funded by the New York State Council on the Arts.

What is The Book of Delights?

From the publisher: A spirited collection of short lyric essays, The Book of Delights, written daily over a tumultuous year, reminds us of the purpose and pleasure of praising and celebrating ordinary wonders.... These remarkable essays serve as a powerful and necessary reminder that we can, and should, stake out a space in our lives for delight.
