The Florida reef tract combined with imprecise navigation, tumultuous weather, and human error have led to thousands of shipwrecks. Matthew Lawrence will relate what archaeological study of this underwater cultural heritage is revealing about the Atlantic maritime world. The Matecumbe Historical Trust will host this month's free lecture starting at 6:30 pm at Island Community Church.

Sesame Street meets The Exorcist in this outrageous comedy. Hand To God tells the story of an awkward Texas teen named Jason, who spends his afternoons at his local church, practicing for the Christian Puppet Ministry run by his widowed mother. All hell literally breaks loose, however, when Jason's puppet Tyrone takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. Nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Play, Hand To God explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind.
