To open the exhibition E. Charlton Fortune: The Colorful Spirit, the Crocker and Capital Stage bring art to life through a theatrical reading. Written by Steve Hauk, Fortune’s Way is a dynamic two-person play that offers audiences the chance to “meet” E. Charlton Fortune through the auspices of an art history lecture. Along the way, we get to know Effie (as she is known by friends) – her struggles, her joys, and the fortitude of spirit she needed to find success as a female in a man's era.
