June 11 – 13
TTOK is proud to present Israel Horovitz’ “Stage Directions”. Directed by Ryan Kerr and featuring Kenn Gibb, Sarah McNeilly, and Amy Cummings, Stage Directions is a play without dialogue. Stage Management by Eryn Lidster
A man and two women meet after a funeral , a time when so much needs to be articulated and understood. And yet, somehow, they cannot bridge the gulf of self-consciousness that separates them, and can only speak at each other via the stage directions which are normally meant to be unheard by the audience. The effect is oblique speech, as though they were present and yet not present, but what is unspoken becomes eloquently clear—and, in the end, reveals the deeper truths that direct statement could only hint at.
