“In a very real way, the opportunity afforded us by the Edgerton grant could not be more fitting. Jeffrey Hatcher’s Ten Chimneys is about the Lunts spending the summer at their estate in Wisconsin ‘investigating’ Chekhov’s play, The Seagull, before facing the quick and sudden rigors of New York rehearsals. In the same way that the Lunts appreciated the need for time and space to seep in the work they were tackling, the Edgerton grant will allow the artists the benefit of time for investigation. Receiving this Edgerton grant will allow the artists and the creative team invaluable time to immerse themselves more fully in the world of the Lunts in the late 1930’s and the themes of Jeffrey’s play. It will add to the authenticity and veracity of the work.”

- David Ira Goldstein, Artistic Director, Arizona Theatre Company, Tucson, AZ, Ten Chimneys, by Jeffrey Hatche
