GOSHEN — Literature is the star this season at Cornerstone Theatre Arts. “By addressing human nature and the conditions which affect all people, literature reflects humanity itself, running heavily through our cultural consciousness and expanding our horizons,” says Cornerstone’s Ken Tschan, who acts, directs, and even writes plays. "Literature Alive: Tolle, Lege," the company’s first show of 2018, will bring to life monologues and scenes curated directly from the original texts, from authors such as the Brontë sisters, Frank McCourt, Sylvia Plath, Mark Haddon, Aldous Huxley, and JD Salinger. Informative narration will tie them together. The show was conceived and created by Jacqueline Dion. It's directed by Dion and BJ Boothe and features the Cornerstone Ensemble Players. The Goshen Public Library & Historical Society is sponsoring the show. Showtimes are 7 p.m. on Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays on the following days: February 17, 18, 24, 25, March 3, 4. Performances are at The Goshen Music Hall, 223 Main St., Goshen (second-floor walk up). Reservations are required: call 294-4188. The suggested donation is $12. Cornerstone has highlighted important historical figures, Shakespeare, and the Civil War in its past “Alive” productions. For more information call 294-4188 or visit cornerstonetheatrearts.org.
