Announcing Skidmore Theater's Fall 2019 Season:
Samuel D. Hunter's
Directed by John Michael DiResta
Performances: October 18-24 at 8pm(Sunday matinee at2pm)
BLACK BOX THEATER, Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater on the Skidmore College Campus
In the basement of a small evangelical church in southeastern Idaho, a group of young missionaries is preparing to go to the Middle East. One of them - a young man who has recently lost his father - has bought a one-way ticket. But his plans are complicated when his estranged sister returns home and makes it her mission to keep him there.
Samuel D. Hunter is a contemporary playwright of such acclaimed plays as The Whale and A Bright New Boise, with The Harvest premiering in 2016 at Lincoln Center Theater. The New York Times praises, "Mr. Hunter always handles his characters with the sensitivity of a gifted sculptor, or maybe a master whittler who shapes each with a razor-sharp knife."
The Hour we knew nothing of each other
Directed by Phil Soltanoff
Performances: November 22-24 and December 5-8 (Sunday matinees at 2pm)
MAINSTAGE THEATER, Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater on the Skidmore College Campus
Some years ago, playwright Peter Handke was sitting in a town square watching people come and go. Suddenly men carrying a coffin emerged from a house and transformed the square into a stage, lending each vignette that followed - a woman walking her dog, a couple having an argument, a man jogging - special meaning.
Inspired by this experience, The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other is a play without words, narrated by music and animated by unspoken interaction. It has 450 characters. The performance will be a romp of an experience; deeply physical and full of joie de vivre.
