Join us on March 1, 2019 for a performance of the play Map of my Kingdom. Map of my Kingdom tackles the critical issue of land transition. In the drama, Angela Martin, a lawyer and mediator in land transition disputes, shares stories of how farmers and landowners she has worked with over the years approached their land successions. Some families almost came to blows, struggling to resolve the sale or transfer of their land, and dissolving relationships. Others found peacefully rational solutions that focused not only on the viability of the family, but also of the land. Map of my Kingdom, written by Iowa Poet Laureate, Mary Swander, is produced by Swander Woman Productions, a theatre company that creates and tours dramatic performances focused on food, farming, and the larger rural environment.
Tickets are “pay what you can” to make the play accessible to all. Suggested rates are $10 per person or $20 per family. Reception with free appetizers and no host bar is from 6:00-7:00 pm. The performance is from 7:00-8:00 pm and will be followed by a 30-minute discussion with playwright Mary Swander
