February 15 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Performance of Miss Valentine at Morgan Opera House
Saturday, February 15th, 2020, 3:00 p.m.
Miss Valentine is a charming, classic style play reminiscent of a Jane Austen novel, peppered with the love poems of Victorian Valentine cards. The romantic and empowering tale is inspired by the life of Victorian-era entrepreneur Esther Howland, “The Mother of the American Valentine.” Esther popularized the custom of exchanging Valentines by individually crafting cards containing mottos of love, which are still sought after by collectors today. By pursuing her passion and staying true to her vision, Esther became one of the first successful businesswomen in America. The play is approximately 85 minutes long and performed by an ensemble of six actors and a harpist. At various points in the play, the cast creates life-sized Valentines reminiscent of the Howland cards.
Miss Valentine is presented by The Wells College Theatre Department
