W.A.R. Theater Stages BEN AND TRISH
"Trisha is lost. Ben must find her. But how deep within himself is Ben willing to look?"
"ben and trish." is the story of Ben retracing the steps of the relationship he shared with his recently deceased sister, Trish. This production will feature an original score written by area musicians Zach Briscoe and Elliott Heerman that accentuates and immerses the audience in the action. Following in the footsteps of prior W.A.R. theater productions, the piece will feature stylized Movement Sequences, highlighting the Actor's Body and recreating the physical journey of these characters.
