NorthernTrespass film will be shown at PSU Thursday

PLYMOUTH —  A New Hampshire-made film that lays out the case against the Northern Pass Project will be shown on the PSU campus on April 24. The showing is being sponsored by Common Ground, Plymouth State University's environmental and social justice student organization, with the assistance of the PSU Office of Environmental Sustainability and the PSU Social Science Department.

The film is entitled Northern Trespass and it is the product of New Hampshire filmmakers Jan Marvel and Michelle Vaughn. The screening is set for Thursday, April 24, at 7 p.m. in the Boyd Science Center, Room 144 on the PSU campus. Following the showing, the filmmakers will be present for a Q & A session, along with Jack Savage from the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. The Forest Society has taken a position in opposition to the Northern Pass Project, at least as currently designed.

A quote from the film's Website (http://www.northerntrespass.com) reveals the focus of the film: "What's all the fuss about the Northern Pass Transmission project? Why are so many people opposed to it? This documentary pulls the veil off and exposes the project for what it really is, an unnecessary and destructive profit-driven proposal that threatens the very essence of New Hampshire and its people."

The showing is free and open to the public.

Sandra Bernhard Live at Plymouth State University April 25

PLYMOUTH — Be ready to laugh until your sides hurt when comedienne, actress, singer Sandra Bernhard brings her one-of-a-kind show, Sandyland, to the Hanaway Theatre at the PSU Silver Center at 8 p.m. April 25.

Bernhard's live performances are a raucous mix of political satire, pop culture commentary theatre, rock'n'roll and stand-up with a little burlesque and cabaret. Her brilliant unity of hilarious diatribes on the state of modern culture burns smart without loosing all the energy of youth.

Always entertaining, Bernhard has been wowing, and sometimes shocking, audiences since starting her career at LA's famed Comedy Store in the 1970s, going on to become a favorite on the live-show comedy circuit nationally, while also forging a career in film, television and on Broadway.

The stage and screen comic diva broke into the film industry in the Martin Scorsese film The King of Comedy and later became known for her television role on Roseanne as Nancy Bartlett, an openly lesbian character. She has also appeared on Hot in Cleveland, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Law & Order:SVU, Will & Grace, The Sopranos and The L Word.

After a five-night sold-out run at New York City's famed Joe's Pub over New Year's 2013, a New York Times reviewer said of Bernhard, "Just below the surface, you sense the same roving critical eye that misses nothing."

Tickets for Sandyland are $35-30 for adults and $33-28 at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.
Due to mature language and subject matter, SandyLand is recommended for adults only.
