Historical Society performance examines justice

Marlborough-The Marlborough Historical Society will again welcome performer Stephen Collins, Tuesday, May 28, at 7 p.m. at Christopher Heights of Marlborough, 99 Pleasant St.

The performance piece, titled “The Search for Justice,” will examine issues of social, political, and religious justice. It will explore questions such as: Can justice be defined, or is it just an abstract concept? What is Truth? How do leaders both political and religious use language to motivate people? Is violent action ever justified when all else fails? Is there such a thing as a just, as opposed to unjust, war?

Included in the performance piece are the words of the Abolitionist Editor William Lloyd Garrison, John Brown's explanation of why he resorted to violence, and the words that remade America – Lincoln's oration at Gettysburg. Also included are the works of Thomas Hardy and other writers and comments on war and religion.

For over a decade, Collins has been enchancting audiences and garnering rave reviews for his performances. Mr. Collins received a B.A. in literature from UMass Boston and has performed for senior communities, libraries and historical societies throughout the country.

This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, visit www.historicmarlborough.com.
