About This Production

Our work in this production was to create a site-specific love letter to our space, that also illuminated the relationships formed in the text rather than the physical trappings of a comfortable life. To me, this play isn't about WASPs, it's about family in its myriad forms. To hone that focus, we took away all the props - except for the wine glasses with which we toasted at the end of the show - and instead lived with the remembered sound of the most essential objects.
