“All of the actors double as two characters within the play; three of them have challenge of creating generations of characters who are at once distinct and bound to one another. Grasping the history and context of the play and investing attention to these details is critical to the production. The grant from the Edgerton Foundation affords vital additional time for the artistic company to fully translate research into performance and to create a world of the play that is both real and poetic.”
