Welcome to the home of three older men — two brothers and their cousin — who are trying to find meaning in their lives in their golden years! Arnie uses meditation. Bob loves pop culture. But Louis, no matter how hard he tries, can’t seem to find anything that works — not online dating, not anti-depressants, not moving back to his childhood home. He thinks all is lost… until he’s visited by a fantastical stranger. In this funny, moving world premiere, Arnie, Louis and Bob come to grips with who they are, what they have been and who they aren’t. Box office: (401) 351-4242

Learn how to balance the preservation of historic gardens with modern goals of sustainability and horticultural excellence! Under the guidance of its newly appointed Director of Horticulture, Jason Veil, the Trustees have initiated a statewide effort to document, improve, and promote its portfolio of garden properties. One challenge they face is the delicate balance between preserving historic landscapes, many with vintage plant material, and injecting the right proportion of 21st century horticultural relevance. In many cases, the sustainable management of these special places will require a shift from aging, invasive, or otherwise undesirable plants to newer selections offering lower maintenance, improved disease resistance, longer bloom times, and other attributes.
