An Afternoon With Julia

Actors Ensemble, in cooperation with Mountain View Cemetery, presents "An Afternoon With Julia", an adaptation of "Arches, Balance, and Light", both by Bay Area playwright Mary Spletter. Directed by Michael R. Cohen. Presented two afternoons only, September 29th and 30th, both at 2 p.m., at the Mountain View Cemetery Chapel

An Afternoon With JuliaThis captivating historic fictionalized play visits famed Bay Area architect Julia Morgan. As her life comes to its final chapter, she enters her imagination to determine whether she should have done anything differently. Should she have had a family? Did she give up too much for too little? The play provides the likely answers and follows the hurdles she overcame to achieve her dream.

Presented two afternoons only, September 29th and 30th, both at 2 p.m., at the Mountain View Cemetery Chapel, on the ground of the cemetery design by pioneering landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead, designer of New York's Central Park.  An optional 15-minute docent walk (or drive) follows with a visit to Julia's final resting place.


Both performances are free-of-charge and open to the public.
