Belfast Free Library will present “Maine at Work,” a free thought-provoking and humorous theatrical performance, Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 6:30 p.m. in the Abbott Room of the downtown library, 106 High St.

Using different historical characters, humor, little-known facts and current material gathered from the general public, playwright and actor David Greenham will explore the people and stories that have influenced how we think about jobs in Maine today. The 30-minute performance will encourage people to consider their personal work experiences and how those experiences are shaped by both our personal and collective histories.

Following the performance, Greenham will engage the audience in a lively discussion of the ideas raised in the play, giving audience members an opportunity to reflect on and share their thoughts about the issues that were examined in the performance and what they have heard and seen.

This program is provided by the Maine Humanities Council as part of its What It Means To Be A Mainer programming.
