Photo Flash: First Look at The New Colony's EVEN LONGER AND FARTHER AWAY Premiere
Following its sell-out production of Byhalia, Mississippi, The New Colony is pleased to continue its 2016 Season with the world premiere of the heartfelt drama EVEN LONGER AND FARTHER AWAY by Chelsea Marcantel, directed by Thrisa Hodits, playing now through May 15, 2016 at its resident home, The Den Theatre's Upstairs Main Stage, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. The press opening is tonight, April 18, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Elliot has one objective: hike the Appalachian Trail and make it to Katahdin the way his father always wanted. Weeks into his journey, Elliot's pilgrimage comes to a halt. On an unseasonably snowy night, Elliot finds himself stuck in a town not found on a map with a half-sister he barely knows and two strangers who know too much. Here, Elliot must confront the truth about how well he knows his father and himself. A new play about memory, family and finding your way.
The production team for EVEN LONGER AND FARTHER AWAY includes: Ashley Woods (scenic design), Marisa Allison (costume designer), Becca Jeffords (lighting design), Heath Hays (sound designer), Alec Long (properties designer), Ian Olsen (technical director), Garth Moritz (production manager), Michele Stine (script supervisor), Ben Kaye (assistant director) and Sarah Collonge (stage manager).
