THE DREAMER AND THE ACROBAT Begins 2/21 as Part of FRIGID Festival
Mallory is an agoraphobic baker who never leaves her shop, eager to experience the world but terrified to try. The circus comes to town with Mallory's best childhood friend - the acrobat Gitano - with whom she's always been secretly in love. To be with him, she must overcome her fears and join the outside world before the circus leaves.
STAV MEISHAR (Playwright, Mallory) had her stage debut at the age of 10 on the Israeli National Tour of Oliver! and hasn't left the stage since. Favorite credits include Elphaba in Wicked (Original Israeli Cast) and the dUKEss of Rock (Edinburgh Fringe). Though a traditional Thespian by training, Stav has broken into new forms of performance - experimenting with ukulele and circus arts. This is her first written play. www.stavmeishar.com
