Sue Mellen, author of A History of Theater on Cape Cod (a Zoom event)
We are pleased to welcome author, theater critic and former Cape Cod Times writer and reviewer, Sue Mellen on Saturday afternoon, 11/14, at 2 p.m., for a Zoom presentation!
Sue will lift the curtain on the rich history of theater on Cape Cod, beginning—where it all began—in Provincetown. She paints a vivid picture of the early years of American drama on the Cape, bringing you into the world of Eugene O’Neill and the Provincetown Players, the Barnstormers and other early groups. Then, as she does in her upcoming book, A History of Theater on Cape Cod, she will take you on a tour of the Cape’s many-faceted theater history, giving you an insider’s view of what has made Cape theater great. She will also talk about the book itself, and how you can order it!
Sue Mellen began her writing career as an arts, entertainment and features writer for the Cape Cod Times. She then worked in public relations, first for a regional healthcare system, then for a classic car museum. Then, after a short stint as a freelance business and technology writer, she began a content-creation firm YourWriters, which she still operates to this day. Through her company, she has co-written and ghostwritten dozens of books for a wide range of clients. She also taught writing at a Massachusetts community college for a number of years.
After an extended hiatus, the author has returned to her first love: reviewing the theatrical productions that grace the historic theaters of Cape Cod.
