Setting the Stage

Quinn Rose

In 1990, a group of idealistic theater majors arrived in a sleepy fishing village with one lofty goal: to create theater that could sustain itself in a rural, economically disadvantaged, and socially divided community. This is the story of Eastport, Maine, Cornerstone Theater Company, and the decades that followed.
