Black Box Lab at Stage284
9/21-9/21/2017
Reading of a New Work Thursday, September 21, 7:30pm A biographical story of a gifted, mature actress whose life spans decades of real history, from her youth during the Depression through the turn of the 21st century. Marriage, children, divorce and rebirth of the dream of being an actress bring her to the act of reminiscing as she attempts to put prices on the pieces of her life as she plans for a Barn Sale. Filled with humor and pathos, we travel with her as she plans a significant life change, while reminiscing certain episodes in her past. Based on the life of the mother of one of Black Box Lab’s founders and producers, Patricia Peterson Jamison.   CAST:     Donna Sorbello (AEA) Bill Mootos  (AEA) Kristina Stevick (AEA)     We will be combining the reading with a reprise of the Boston production of Homebody with Equity Actress Debra Wise that same weekend.  The overarching theme of the theatrical events is "Second Chances".    Written by award-winning Director of Zeitgeist Stage, David Miller.    Additional Information and tickets may be found at www.stage284.org

Homebody by Tony Kushner in Broadway HOMEBODY BY TONY KUSHNER
Black Box Lab at Stage284
9/23-9/24/2017
HOMEBODY Holding only an outdated guidebook of Kabul, an eccentric and agoraphobic British housewife proclaims her unconsummated passion for the world. She grapples with the rich and turbulent history of Afghanistan, muses about living in the Middle East, confides to us her desire to divorce herself from the complacency of her safe life in London. Premiering shortly after 9/11, Tony Kushner’s prescience was praised, as was Homebody’s warm invocation of hope in an increasingly chilling, negative world. Performed by Award-winning Boston Equity Actress and Founder of the Underground Railroad Theater , Debra Wise. Directed by Award-winning Artistic Director of the Nora Stage Theater, Lee Mikeska Gardner. Directed by Lee Mikeska Gardner and set in 1998, “Homebody’’ is an eloquently discursive meditation on history, on culture, and on the far-reaching, if sometimes hidden, connections between the past and the present. Kushner’s title character is a singular creation, and Wise responds with a searching performance of corresponding depth. She inscribes her portrayal of the Homebody with a vivid specificity that conveys the character’s personality, imagination, and sensibility.  “The Boston Globe” [Don Aucoin] Additional Information and tickets may be found at www.stage284.org Direct Ticket Order Site for HOMEBODY only : http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3053474

HOME in Broadway HOME
ArtsEmerson
9/27-10/1/2017
On an empty stage, a house is conjured from thin air. Residents move in, move out, clean up, burn down, sweep under, paint over, fence off and move on — and all the while, they live among the traces of residents present, past and future. Geoff Sobelle’s HOME is a house party of the greatest proportion, telling the story of a house, and showing what it means to create home. A magical, large-scale spectacle built from the ground up, HOME combines dance, illusion, live music, home-spun engineering and an inventive use of audience interaction to compose an experience that asks, where is home? If it is not a place, what is home? HOME explores — and explodes — the relationship between “house” and “home,” and it invites audiences to think twice about the physical and emotional bonds that connect us.
