NHTP and Act One Present A BODY OF WATER, Opening 3/15
In Collaboration with Artists' Collaborative Theatre Of New England (ACT ONE),
New Hampshire Theatre Project continues the 2012-13 Season with an exploration of the intriguing relationship between identity, reality, and memory.
In A Body of Water, playwright Lee Blessing poses an intriguing question:
would you know who you are if you suddenly had no memories? An attractive, middle-aged couple wakes up one morning in an isolated summer house high above a body of water. The weather's fine; the view's magnificent. There's only one problem ~ neither of them can remember who they are or how they came to be here.
With growing alarm, spiked with lightning flashes of humor, they try to make sense of the situation. When a young woman arrives, they are certain she will solve their quandary. But instead she offers them a shifting pattern of scenarios, which only leads to more questions. If memory, that invisible record of past experience, disappears, do our dreams and desires for the future cease to propel us forward?
Without past or future, can we know who we are?
With the present as our sole reality, are we left with nothing...or everything?
Featuring Peter Josephson, Kate Braun, and Ashley Risteen.
With direction by Stephanie Voss Nugent
and lighting design & scenic design by Meghann Beauchamp.
