Edgemar Center for the Arts Presents: World Premiere of new play ONE WHITE CROW
A journalist, a medium, and a skeptic, where does belief end and truth begin?
Tess O’Neill is an investigative journalist assigned to profile renowned television personality and psychic medium Judith Knight. Judith claims to make contact with people who have died, connecting them with people in the audience. The assignment is no accident. Tess is the daughter of the brilliant late science writer Robert O’Neill, who would have never believed in Judith’s abilities. Tess’ every instinct suggests to her that Judith is a charlatan. But what if she’s not? Things happen that cause Tess to re-examine the possibility that Judith does what she says she does. Judith claims that Robert is reaching out to Tess from beyond the grave. Tess enlists the aid of Alex Rimbaud, a scientist, skeptic, and Robert’s former protégé. He is convinced that Judith is a bunco artist and plans to publish a magazine piece exposing her as a fraud. While Tess consults Alex, their long-repressed passion for each other is revived. Tess, Alex and Judith are headed for a showdown as Tess is determined to learn the truth of things once and for all. Is Judith a fraud? Or is Robert actually trying to make contact with her from the Beyond? What will this bode for Tess’ and Alex’s future together?
