The fifth season of Twenty Summers in Provincetown launches this weekend at the start of a month of art, concerts and conversations in the Hawthorne Barn. Many of the biggest events are sold out for the intimate space, but tickets are still available for others.
The season begins with a free open house from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday at the barn at 29 Miller Hill Road.
Upcoming events with tickets still available include: a chowder-and-chili barn dance presented by designer Ken Fulk on May 25; concerts with Boston-based gothic-folk artist Marissa Nadler (June 1) and electro-pop duo Overcoats playing in the Hofmann Studio in Provincetown’s West End (June 10); and a theatrical reading of the new play “Pollock,” featuring New York actors Jim Fletcher and Birgit Huppuch (June 16).
“Conversations” with available tickets include: novelist Michael Cunningham and philosopher-memoirist Daniel Mendelsohn talking about authors turning to literature to “broaden their horizons” (May 27); award-winning playwright J.T. Rogers (“Oslo”) and longtime foreign correspondent Rajiv Chandrasekaran on the intersection of politics, journalism, and art (June 8); and a discussion of poetry by poets Robert Pinsky (former U.S. poet laureate) and Monica Youn (June 9).
