Marlboro College


MARLBORO, VT - (April 6, 2010) - Marlboro College will present a free, open to the public performance of The Maltese Falcon at 8:00pm on Friday & Saturday, April 16-17 in the Whittemore Theater.

Guest director Joshua Moyse has developed this postmodern exploration of Dashiell Hammett's classic detective novel and John Huston's 1941 film adaptation. A cast and crew comprised entirely of Marlboro College students have been working with Moyse through the spring 2010 semester, learning to challenge preconceived notions of the creative process and what it means to adapt a masterpiece from multiple mediums.

Over the past 20 years, Moyse has worked extensively with several New York and Los Angeles theaters and with film companies in Los Angeles and Vermont. He received his B.F.A. from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, and his M.F.A. from the California Institute of the Arts. Most recently, Moyse directed the west coast premiere of French playwright Valère Novarina's subversive one-man show, Adramelech's Monologue, and he is currently directing a documentary film about what occurred in the Louisiana Superdome during Hurricane Katrina under the working title, Camp Katrina.

This performance contains material that may not be suitable for children. For more information, contact the Marlboro College Public Relations department at 802-251-7644 or In the event of inclement weather, please call 802-451-7151 for cancellation information.
