Edward Albee's OCCUPANT to Make Area Debut at WingSpan Theatre Company
Wingspan Theatre Company in cooperation with The Bath House Cultural Arts Center celebrates its 20th Anniversary Season!
This fall, WingSpan Theatre Company will present the Area Premiere of Edward Albee's OCCUPANT. The 20th Anniversary Season is dedicated to the legendary American playwright and grand provocateur - Edward Albee - who departed the world on September 16, 2016.
Unapologetic and flamboyant, New York sculptor Louise Nevelson's life was marked by intrepid artistic triumphs as well as deep inner turmoil. In Edward Albee's OCCUPANT both her public accomplishments and private emotional conflicts are thoroughly examined by an unnamed interviewer who questions the posthumous Nevelson with unabashed scrutiny.
From her unique vantage point beyond the grave, Nevelson answers his queries with a clarity born of the distance provided by death. The result is a touching, humorous, and honest tribute to a woman who was a pioneer of free-thinking females everywhere. Edward Albee's OCCUPANT is a testament of will, internal strength, and the cryptic force that continues to drive great artists.
The play will be directed by Producing Artistic Director, Susan Sargeant. The cast features Constance Gold Parry (Louise Nevelson) and David Benn (The Man).
The production will be designed by Nick Brethauer/Scenic Design, Jason Foster/Lighting Design, Barbara C. Cox/Costume Design, Lowell Design/Sound Design and Bobby Selah/Stage Management.
