About Lawrence
map
Lawrence Massachusetts is located 25 miles north of Boston just off of Route 495. Built in the 1840's and planned as the nation's first industrial city and testimony to this concept are the massive mill buildings that line the Merrimack River, the striking clock and bell towers and the awesome Great Stone Dam.

The strength of the harnessed Merrimack River and its canals served to fuel the Lawrence mills that produced textiles for the American and European markets. The city was a world leader in production of cotton and woolen textiles by the early 20th century.

Lawrence has always been a multi ethnic and multi cultural city with a high proportion of foreign born residents thereby giving it the name "The Immigrant City"ť. Waves if immigrants coming to Lawrence to work in the mills beginning in the Late 1800's and continuing to the present day have made Lawrence truly a home to everyone,

Today, Lawrence remains an urban center in which 35% of its economy is still based of manufacture. The city is still a hub of textile, apparel and shoe companies such as Malden Mills, KGR, Grieco Brothers, New Balance and Cardinal Shoe. Combined with its affordable space and convenient location, newer companies in technology, health care, and manufacturing have chosen to locate in Lawrence.

Lawrence offers recreational, historical and cultural attractions along with people committed to living and working in a safe environment. The city boasts sailing on the Merrimack, Heritage State Park, art exhibitions and a wide range of cultural activities such as ethnic festivals that celebrate Lawrence's diversity and rich heritage.

Theatre Things & A SHOW WITHIN A SHOW WITHIN A SHOW
FREE GALLERY EXHIBITS Sidell Gallery: The Acting Out!Theater Company began operating in 2002 in a church basement and has worked hard to create a home at 56 Island Street in Lawrence, where it opened a studio seven years ago. In that time, Acting Out! has established a one hundred seat theater that fills up quickly for performances. Beland Gallery: A storytelling experience about perspective, memory and the unreliable narrator by Patrick Guerrero and Kate Delaney The space of the Beland Gallery is transformed into a theater with an audience of fabricated people. Using audio visuals, the viewer can watch the events of the show unfold from the perspective of audience members and performers on stage, as they move around the space. Each location in the audience provides another point of view of the events happening in the story, many contradicting or challenging the true story on the main "stage". But what is the "true" story? The events interpreted must be treated as both true and untrue as the viewer must resolve discrepancies within the story.
