Robert Faust, founder and artistic director of Faustwork Mask Theatre, will present “The Mask Messenger” in celebration of this year’s summer reading programs. “The Mask Messenger” will discuss, demonstrate, and expand the concept of the mask, exploring its relationship to human psychology, business, fashion, art, dance, and theatre.
