Bulletin Board: Susannah Greenblatt '16

Short film La Ciega is the feminist portrait of a 17th century mystic grappling with a surreal vision world slowly overtaking her reality, now on Kickstarter. Writer/Director duo Susannah Greenblatt 16' and Raphael Linden 15' are working on a thirteen-minute live-action film that delves into the vision world of a blind mystic named María Cotanilla, who lived in Spain in the 17th century. An outcast in her small village, María finds in her mystical visions a world of her own—one where she can explore color, desire, divinity, and her own boundless creativity, safe from the repressive eye of her neighbors. Based on a true story.  Read More

Hello! I’m writing to let you know that a fellow Wesleyan alum, Kate MacCluggage ’04, will be starring in a lead role in Ithaca, NY at the Kitchen Theatre Company's upcoming performance of Ironbound by playwright Martyna Majok. Ironbound is the story of a 'hard-working Polish immigrant, Darja (MacCluggage), who is done dating cheaters and dreamers. It’s time to look out for herself and the only thing that matters more—her son. Over the course of three relationships, two decades and three presidential administrations, Darja must decide how hard she’s willing to fight for what she loves most. From rising star Martyna Majok comes a portrait of a woman for whom love is a luxury - and a liability - when fighting to survive in America. A new play brimming with humor, wit, and a lot of heart.’ The show will run at the Kitchen Theatre Company in downtown Ithaca from January 21 until February 4. For more information on showtimes and tickets visit; I hope that you will be able to make it and introduce yourself to Kate after the show! GO WES! Read More

Wesleyan Magazine Issue 3 - 2017
To walk Wesleyan’s campus is to be surrounded by history that whispers from buildings. Look inside to read about the Presidents who left their mark (or didn’t), the legendary faculty who built Wesleyan’s reputation, the controversies that raged, and the seismic changes in student life since the University was founded in 1831. All these moments, and more, make Wesleyan what it is today.
