Running January 10th to February 1st 2020, the Warehouse will present what critics are hailing as a” guilty pleasure “ ( New York Times ). A spite-filled comedy about women scorned in Minnesota and the really, really nice gangsters— Norwegian hit men—they hire to whack their ex-boyfriends. Olive is a transplant from Texas and Betty is a transplant from Kentucky, but neither of them was prepared for the Norwegian men they would fall in love with there: the practical, warm, thoughtful, destructive, evil, jilting kind. If you’re a hit man in Minnesota, 83% of your clients want to take out their ex (oofda!). Betty has referred Olive to Gus and Tor, a partnership in the whacking business. What Tor doesn’t know is that Gus has been sleeping with the clients. What Olive doesn’t know is that Gus is Betty’s own ex, and she has already put out a hit on him with a Swiss firm. Can Betty call off the job in time to let Gus do his? Should she?

The Maurice Sendak Memorial Exhibition is a celebration of 50 Years, 50 Works, and 50 Reasons. This exhibition spotlights 50 original works by Maurice Sendak, who was an award-winning author and illustrator, most widely recognized for Where the Wild Things Are. Throughout his career, Sendak authored 22 books and illustrated 79 others. It will be on display at the Main Branch of the Gaston County Public Library in Gastonia, which is the only stop on the tour in North Carolina. Hours may vary. Please call the Gaston County Public Library for more information.
Maurice Sendak was the winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are and the only American illustrator to win the international Hans Christian Andersen Award (in 1970, for his body of work). He was a visionary figure in children’s literature. Mr. Sendak began by illustrating the works of others— including Else Holmelund Minarik, Randall Jarrell, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and the Brothers Grimm. By 1956, with Kenny’s Window, he was creating his own texts as well as illustrations.
Also a distinguished set and costume designer for opera and ballet, Sendak has designed productions of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Janácek’s The Cunning Little Vixen, Prokofiev’s The Love for Three Oranges, Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges and L’heure espagnole, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, and Oliver Knussen’s operas based on his Where the Wild Things Are and Higglety Pigglety Pop! In 1983, Mr. Sendak received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award from the American Library Association, given in recognition of his entire body of work; in 1996, he received a National Medal of Arts in recognition of his contribution to the arts in America; and in 2003 he received the first Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, an annual, international prize for children’s literature established by the Swedish government.
