“Oldest Living Confederate Widow”

SARANAC LAKE —The “Oldest Living Confederate Widow” one-woman show to be performed at the Pendragon Theater, 15 Brandy Brook Ave, on Sept. 1, at 8 p.m.

Based on the 1989 best-selling novel Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All by Allan Gurganus, this one-woman show features Binnie Holum as the 99 year-old Lucille Mardsen. Looking back on her long life and her experiences as the wife of a Civil War veteran, Lucille vividly recounts the combat and the historical figures of the war years, as well as the hidden conflicts of domesticity. A great evening of story-telling, this piece is timely, both dramatic and comic, saintly and sinful.

Tickets are $22.
