“The Edgerton Foundation’s grant is making it possible to add two extra weeks of rehearsal to the production schedule. These extra rehearsal weeks are critical due to the complex structure of the play, which includes filmed elements that will be projected on stage. Because of the “film within the play” the creative team will be limited in their abilities to make changes to the production once the filmed elements are shot since the film and the action on stage must work together. These extra rehearsal weeks will allow the writer, director, and actors to have time to rehearse and revise before the film components are finalized.”
