Wellesley Summer Theatre kicks off new year with “The Clearing”

The Clearing, Wellesley College, 2014Wellesley Summer Theatre presents Helen Edmundson’s The Clearing from Jan. 9-Feb. 2 at the Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre.

The summary: Robert, an English landowner, and his Irish wife Madeline find themselves on opposite sides of a cruel divide. Neighbor is being pitted against neighbor as the forces of Oliver Cromwell wreak havoc on the countryside. It’s a stunning tale of treachery, romance and passion set in seventeenth century Ireland.
