Puposky Playwright’s Original Work NYC Bound

Puposky Playwright’s Original Work NYC Bound

All it takes is a spark. Several years ago, Cate Belleveau agreed to portray Mary Welsh Hemingway in a Beltrami County Historical Society fundraising event. The experience ignited a curiosity that could not be denied. Fascinated by her new knowledge of an intelligent, adventurous woman who grew up in logging country and ended up the 4th wife of Ernest Hemingway, over the next few years, Cate committed to researching Mary Welsh Hemingway. Intrigued, her thirst for knowledge led to investigations into the lives of other significant women in Hemingway’s life – all four of his wives, his mother and his granddaughter. The result of her passion is an original play, “Mary 4, Martha 3: No Footnotes.” It was produced in both Walker and Bemidji in 2016 and later this month will be produced in New York as part of the New York Summerfest Theater competition. Cate stopped by KBXE to chat about it.
