Oakley Hall III’s “Grinder’s Stand”

The late local theater great's final written work, "Grinder's Stand," is revived at the Bridge Street Theatre "Raw Space" in Catskill for eight exclusive performances, from October 8 to 18. The 1978 play delves into the mysterious death of Meriwether Lewis of the infamous Lewis and Clark expedition—whether his demise was met through suicide, murder, or something much darker. Tragically, Oakley, the man who thrived as Artistic Director of Greene County's legendary Lexington Conservatory Theatre, fell from a bridge over Schoharie Creek that same year, suffering severe head trauma he would fail to recover from up until his death in 2011. The production coincides with an exhibit highlighting the famous playwright and his contributions to Greene County's cultural, artistic development, including archival photos of the Lexington Conservatory Theatre and a screening of Bill Rose's documentary on Oakley's life, The Loss of Nameless Things.
