Commemoration

The walk, originally scheduled for May 1, 2021 is in the process of being converted to a virtual tour format to be tentatively released September 4th. Final date and details to come.

The virtual Wampanoag Ancestors Walk will be led by the Wampanoag tribes of Massachusetts. Placards will be carried with the names of the original 69 villages of the Wampanoag Nation. Participants will pay homage to Massasoit and King Phillip and will highlight designated sites to bless the spots where Wampanoag ancestors walked. The walk will conclude with a native song and ceremony  honoring Native souls. The Ancestors Quilt will also be on display in conjunction with this event. We appreciate everyone’s flexibility as we read and react to pandemic-related regulations and would invite you to check back frequently and follow our social media pages for updates.

Stephan Delbos is an internationally renowned poet, playwright translator, editor and literary scholar. He is the author of the poetry chapbook In Memory of Fire, and the poetry collections Light Reading and Small Talk. His play Chetty’s Lullaby, about trumpet legend Chet Baker, was produced in San Francisco in 2013. His play Deaf Empire, about the Czech composer Smetana, was produced by the Prague Shakespeare Company in 2017. His scholarly work includes the book The New American Poetry and Cold War Nationalism forthcoming from Palgrave. Stephan was born and raised in downtown Plymouth, where views of the harbor, Cape Cod Bay and beyond have always inspired his writing. He is honored to have been chosen as Plymouth’s first Poet Laureate, and has been using this platform to inspire the town, foster community, facilitate creativity and promote Plymouth globally.

Marianne van Velzen has written for as long as she can remember. It started with (a lot) of diaries, then short stories and poems. Very romantic poems to start with. In 2014 she published a book with 15 fables for adults. Marianne not only writes, she has her own company as a coach, trainer and mediator called ‘Wisselland,’ meaning: ‘change country.’ In her poems and in her daily work, Marianne likes to change place and look from another perspective. There you find the connection and room for new possibilities. In 2018 Marianne was elected as “Stadsdichter van Leiden” (the Poet Laureate of Leiden) and loving it since.

Laura Horton is a playwright and screenwriter. In 2021 she took over as the Plymouth UK Laureate of Words as the first woman and playwright. In this two-year role, she will be writing about the city, teaching and co-convening events. She is an artistic associate of The Space, which supports arts organizations and artists to develop work and reach audiences online.  Laura is a 2017 SoHo Theatre Writer’s Lab alumni. Her plays include Giddy Tuppy, The Space, ONCOMM winner, 2020; A Summer of Birds, Plymouth Fringe, Toast of the Fringe winner, 2020; Labyrinth Diet (full-length) The Space, 2020; Labyrinth Diet short, Arcola Theatre 2019; This I Believe, Theatre Royal Plymouth, Exeter Phoenix, 2019. In 2020 she wrote and produced her first film, A Summer of Birds, for Plymouth Fringe, and the film won the toast of the Fringe Award.

 

Join us for the Episode Three of our Plymouth 400 CONVERSATIONS series on PACTV (Plymouth Area Community Television)! Our guest will be Andrew Giles Buckley. The program will air on February 25th and March 4th at 7:30PM on Comcast channel 13 and Verizon channel 43 in the towns of Plymouth, Duxbury, Kingston, and Pembroke. We will also add a streaming link to this page after the program airs.

Andrew Giles Buckley is the Host and Producer of Hit & Run History, a historical novelist, travel book author, opinion journalist and world-class storyteller.

Andrew, a two-time Emmy-nominated producer, founded Hit & Run History in 2008.  In their film, Stephano: The True Story of Shakespeare’s Shipwreck, Andrew and his crew are hot on the trail of Stephen Hopkins, a Virginia-bound castaway who found his way not only onto the decks of the Mayflower a decade later, but immortalized on stage as the drunken Stephano in Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest.

The documentary follows the story of the only Mayflower passenger who had been to North America previously. A decade earlier, Stephen Hopkins had been aboard a Jamestown-bound ship that wrecked on Bermuda, inspiring The Tempest.

A Hopkins descendant, Andrew grew up hearing stories that New Plymouth’s iconoclast tavern keeper may have the model of The Tempest’s drunken and mutinous Stephano. In their Gumshoe Historian style, Hit and Run History seeks out the reality of a man who was everywhere at the founding of America.

THIS EXHIBIT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL PILGRIM HALL MUSEUM REOPENS. Please visit their website for updates. 

The Plymouth Tapestry is a heroically-scaled embroidered tapestry that tells the story of Plymouth, Massachusetts through handcrafted needlework. Commissioned by Pilgrim Hall Museum in honor of the 400th anniversary of Plymouth Colony’s founding, the Plymouth Tapestry portrays the experiences of the English settlers who arrived on the Mayflower and the Wampanoag families who inhabited the region for millennia before their arrival.

The multimedia-thread-on-linen embroidery will be comprised of twenty individual six-foot-long panels, created by volunteer embroiderers. On April 16th at a gala reception, the first series of completed panels will be unveiled, including scenes of the Wampanoag village of Patuxcet, and the rise of the Separatist Pilgrim congregation in northern England. Selected panels will be displayed from April 17th through December 30, 2020. The Tapestry will be shown in its entirety on completion, expected in the Fall of 2021.
