Dramatic Reading: All She Must Possess

December 30, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$12

The Cone sisters of Baltimore, Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta, daughters of German-Jewish immigrants, could have lived tranquil lives as respected Victorian women. Instead, the iconic duo voraciously collected art and curios from around the world. The unassuming Etta, often overshadowed by her sister, sat demurely among art and literary geniuses of the early twentieth century while slowly amassing one of world’s greatest Modern art collections, which would eventually be bequeathed to the Baltimore Museum of Art. All She Must Possess is a highly theatrical celebration of Etta’s extraordinary life. Works of art come alive and her one-time lover, Gertrude Stein, sings her praises as we watch her journey from society laughingstock to doyen of Modernity. Playwright: Susan McCully.  A fully staged production will premiere in Baltimore on February 8, 2018.
