Part of The Pumphouse

Did you know that Benjamin Britten once shared a house with WH Auden, Carson McCullers and Gypsy Rose Lee? A hive of activity for many artists, the house saw Lee write her pulp classic The G-String Murder and Britten compose Paul Bunyan. Join this eclectic company for an hour of readings, music, and unexpected interludes.
