Lunch & Learn with Pat Brady  March 10, 2020, Jewelry Art Class

At this Lunch N’ Learn we will be using costume jewelry pieces to make works of art on fabric attached to a canvas or board.  Sample ideas will be available but you are encouraged to use your imagination.  One fun piece is to make a Christmas Tree arrangement or a group of flowers.

Items to bring if you can:

8 x 10 canvas or smaller (we will also have a few of these available)

Fabric to cover the canvas, sturdy enough to hold the jewelry pieces (we will have fabric available)

Pliers for removing pins, etc.

Glue gun (if you have one)

Old pieces of costume jewelry such as pins, pearls/necklaces, earrings, etc.  (A lot of broaches will be available) Also if you like to work with a pattern, print a simple one from the internet.

Play Synopsis

Middle-aged and married, overworked and overweight, Barney Cashman wants to join the sexual revolution before it’s too late and arranges three seductions: the first, Elaine Navazio proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses; Bobbi Michele is next, a 20-ish actress who’s too kooky by half; finally comes September and Jeanette Fisher, a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney’s best friend.

The Characters – Casting 1m, 3f

BARNEY CASHMAN, a forty-seven-year-old owner of a seafood restaurant who is afraid that the sexual revolution of the 1960’s is passing him by.

ELAINE NAVAZIO, a somewhat coarse woman in her late thirties who believes, when she accepts Barney’s invitation to meet him at his mother’s apartment, that he wants only a quick sexual encounter. 

BOBBI MICHELE, a twenty-seven-year-old unemployed entertainer who visits Barney to repay twenty dollars that he loaned to her to pay an accompanist who assisted her during an audition.

JEANETTE FISHER, a contemporary of Barney and a family friend, a very depressed lady who has decided to repay her husband’s confession of infidelity by having an affair with Barney.
