Memorial Service for Max Wilk in Southport April 9

A memorial service celebrating the life of Max Wilk will take place April 9 at 3 pm at the Pequot Library in Southport. The ceremony will feature music and various speakers who were close to Wilk. Light refreshments will be served following the service.

Max Wilk, author, playwright, film and television writer, and dramaturg for the National Playwrights Conference at the O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford for nearly three decades, died Feb. 19 in his home in Westport at 90.

While at the O’Neill, Wilk helped both emerging and established playwrights refine their plays, working with some of modern theater’s top luminaries. He graduated from the Yale School of Drama, served in the military and had an impressive career as a writer, playwright and screenwriter. Wilk was the author of 19 books, four films, three produced plays and countless television shows and magazine articles.

The O’Neill also is planning a gathering in honor of Wilk during its 2011 summer season, more details to follow.

The Pequot Library is located at 720 Pequot Avenue Southport.
