FROM HOPELESS RURAL NEWBIE TO HILLSDALE TOWN HISTORIAN  “The Village Cidiot” At Spencertown Academy March 23 & 24 

March 24 @ 2:00 PM

March 14, 2024 – “The Village Cidiot,” a one-woman show written and performed by Hillsdale Town Historian Lauren Letellier, will be at Spencertown Academy Arts Center Saturday March 23 at 7:30pm and Sunday March 24 at 2:00pm. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at spencertownacademy.org.

“Cidiot” is a mildly derisive term describing New York City residents who move upstate ill-equipped for rural life. The story is based on the author’s own experiences struggling with losing her urban identity, being unprepared for the realities of country living, and mourning the loss of her youngest brother. Reviewing the show’s premiere at Bridge St. Theatre’s 2023 SoloFest, Berkshire on Stage called it “uproarious and poignant” and “an entrancing piece of theater.”
