OHMPAA - Community Theater in the Hills

Papermaker poster


Monica Wood

June 20-30 at the Norway Grange

directed by Julie Middleton

During a paper mill strike in a small Maine town, the lives of two families collide around a company CEO and a man building a wooden ark in his yard. Criss-crossing the lines between workers and management, novelist Monica Wood’s first play is a revealing, heartfelt drama about family, loyalty, and the quiet intricacies of mill-town life.
