  All in Good Fun
Peterborough - Developed by Talene Monahon It is a story all too common in the news today: a well-respected college, praised for safe and happy campus life, is suddenly exposed for hidden Greek-life hazing and sexual assault scandals. All in Good Fun (a 2013 United Solo Festival bestseller) uses the words of over twenty-five students, faculty and alumni of Dartmouth College to shed light on the paradox of school spirit and outrage these scandals expose. Developed and performed by Talene Monahon (a 2013 Second Company member and Dartmouth alumnus), this theatrical documentary opens a window into collegiate life to uncover the darkness brushed off as “all in good fun.”
Location: Peterborough Players, P.O. Box 118, 55 Hadley Road

  First Friday of October
Peterborough - Free KidCraft Art activity for kids of all ages. 7:30pm: Film: Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North. With talk by James DeWolf Perry. Contradicting popular belief that the South alone was engaged in slavery, this film follows Rhode Island DeWolf family members as they discover their family's past as largest slave-trading dynasty in U.S. history. From 1769 to 1820, DeWolf ships sailed from Bristol, R.I. to West Africa with rum to trade for African men, women, and children. More than 10,000 Africans were taken to DeWolfe sugar plantations in Cuba. Molasses were transported back to Bristol distilleries and turned into rum. A U.S. senator and the richest man in the U.S. during his lifetime, James DeWolf's enterprise was just one of a number of slave trading dynasties, but his network linked many other northern enterprises to the slave trade. Admission: Adults $6, Senior $5, and Members Free!
