March 3: ‘Borderline’ concert at Walker Farm

Weston Playhouse at Walker Farm presents two free public concerts of musical selections from Borderline, Weston’s 2018 New Musical Award Winner on Saturday, March 3 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Weston Playhouse at Walker Farm at 705 Main St. in Weston.

Written and composed by Aryanna Garber and Benjamin Velez, the deeply personal and affecting musical challenges the stigma of Borderline Personality Disorder, through one remarkable young woman’s experience with the oft-misunderstood disease and her search for honest connections amidst a revolving door of therapists, medications and a former childhood chess champion. Weston Associate Artistic Director Michael Berresse will direct the project with Music Director Daniel Green and a Broadway cast.
