[Postponed] Two Wives of John Steinbeck – A Staged Reading

Course Description:

Dear OLLI Members and Friends,

We're deeply sorry to share that our live performance of Two Wives of John Steinbeck: A Staged Reading, originally scheduled for Friday, September 24th, has been cancelled. 

With the recent increase in Delta variant cases, the university has asked us to restrict the size of our in-person gatherings. With this new restriction, we simply can't accommodate the large number of folks who registered for this event.

But not to fret. The Monterey County Theatre Alliance will hold three online performances (webinars) on November 5, 6, 7. You may register for any or all of the performances with one registration. Same great offering, just different dates and time – and viewable from the comfort of your own home.

Here's the link to register:

Thank you for understanding,

Join us for a special live performance that supposes what might have occurred between Steinbeck's wife, Carol, and his mistress and future wife, Gwyn upon their first meeting. Somewhat historical, somewhat comical, and full-on entertaining, this live performance will be followed by a Q&A session with the actors and writer/director Carol Marquart.


Tuition: $0.00

Additional Fees: $0.00


Friday, Sept. 24 *2:00 - 3:30pm* (1 session)


Course will be presented live at CSUMB Ryan Ranch (8 Upper Ragsdale Road, Monterey) and will NOT be recorded or available for viewing later. To keep everyone safe, seats are limited.


Carol Marquart has written and performed staged readings throughout the Monterey Peninsula. Carol enjoys writing about famous and infamous persons of the twentieth century.
