Medfield Native Returns with Original Piece of Theater 

Michael Norton, playwright and actor, is a graduate of Medfield High School Class of 2010. Michael is bringing his new play to Medfield this Thanksgiving. His new work is specially written with Medfield in mind and should be a big hit for lifelong Medfieldians young and old.

He says of the new work, “almost forgot the phalanx of fire: A Wine-and-Cheese Experiment in Three Parts is a solo performance that tears apart the text of a classic Russian play, a lecture-gone-wrong, a forgotten essay about Medfield, and a story of mysterious letters in an attempt to define that peculiar sensation we call “home.”

Tickets are online at You can receive 30% with the promo code- medfieldians.

Gateway opening


This morning was the official ribbon cutting and opening of the new Charles River overlook dubbed the Gateway at Medfield.  Over one hundred people gathered in the strong fall winds at Medfield’s newest jewel, high above the Charles –  some walked, some rode bikes, and some came on horses.  Richared DeSorgher officiated with a loud speaker’s voice honed by years in the classroom.

Richard declared it Arbor Day in town, reading the proclamation citing teh 55 trees planted at the site, and then introduced the series of speakers:

  • Carol Gladstone, DCAMM Commissioner
  • Carol I. Sanchez, DCR Commissioner (see photo below)
  • Mike Francis, TTOR Superintendent
  • Bob Zimmerman, CRWA Executive Director


Bill Massaro, John Thompson, and John Harney were signaled out repeatedly for their efforts that turned the ship of the Massachusetts state away from its less expensive, simplistic, but legally sufficient cap and cover formulaic clean up, to the result that has created the state’s newest park, with dramatic views down to the Charles River below and the largest recreated wetlands in the history of the river.

Even the ruins of the old pump house has been made interesting –
