September 24 – 27
4th Line Theatre’s Kim Blackwell premieres her debut script, which examines family estrangement, at the Open Spaces Theatre Festival. Daughter is a story of tragic error; of the failings of love that become true failings. The heart-wrenching piece contemplates (mis)communication, abandonment, love, betrayal, contempt, inertia, persistence, and beholding.
Director – Lindy Finlan
Performers – Dani Breau and Peyton Le Barr
The 13th Sign Walks into a Bar
A delightfully playful musical show follows “future star-crossed lovers” (or not?) as they bear witness to one another, after-hours in a bar.
The tension between the two characters is as playful as Ferreri’s use of archetypes and tropes. Yet, as their encounter goes on, the audience is provoked to question the stars: is everything inevitable? Perhaps, we’ll never know.
Written and directed – Alessandra Ferreri
Produced – Dane Shumak of Cordwainer Productions
Performed – Ryan Hancock, Tanya Filipopoulos
Music – Caitlin Currie, Kevin Lemieux, Justin Hiscox, Sam Quinn
