Huntington Theatre Company awards commission to alum

The Huntington Theatre Company has awarded Stanford Calderwood Commissions to four Boston-area playwrights, including Ronan Noone (GRS’01), to foster the development of new plays in Boston and to build an ongoing artistic partnership with local writers. The Stanford Calderwood Fund for New American Plays was established in 2002 to enable the Huntington to commission new work from emerging and established playwrights. The first play in Noone’s Baile trilogy, The Lepers of Baile Baiste, won the 2002 National Playwriting Award. The Blowin of Baile Gall won the Elliot Norton Award for outstanding new script.

Boston Medical Center’s annual We Care Walk

On Sunday, October 5, Boston Medical Center will hold its annual five-mile walk to raise funds in support of critical hospital programs. The course winds through the neighborhoods BMC serves, including Boston’s historic South End, lower Roxbury, and Dudley Square. On the day of the walk, nonperishable foods will be collected at a food drive to benefit BMC’s Preventive Food Pantry and Demonstration Kitchen. “This year’s event takes on added importance, as it honors the memory of Sister Claire Hayes,” says Valerie Navy-Daniels, BMC’s director of community relations. The late Sister Claire was a hospital chaplain who dedicated herself to serving the hospital and the BUMC community for more than 12 years. After the walk there will be a free festival featuring live entertainment, refreshments, health information, and children’s activities on the lawns near the Menino Pavilion. To obtain a pledge form, arrange online giving, or volunteer for the event, call 617-638-6910 or visit www.bmc.org/walk.
