Lettre, O'Connor, Murman Star In GREENLAND At The Bridge Theatre
The Bridge Theater Company presents a workshop presentation of Greenland, Nicolas Billon's award-winning play, February 4 through 6, 2010 as part of The Winter Workshop Series 2010.
In September 2005, an island was discovered off the east coast of Greenland. Originally mapped as part of the mainland, the receding ice sheet has 'revealed' it to be an independent land mass.
Greenland re-imagines the story of the island's discovery. Glaciologist Jonathan Fahey's family is set adrift after the loss of one of their members, and the increasing distance between them mirrors that of the island from the mainland.
First staged at Toronto's 2009 SummerWorks Festival, Greenland won both the Outstanding Production Award and the NOW Audience Choice Award.
Directed by Ravi Jain (International WOW Company) and featuring Peter Lettre (Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant), Susan Louise O'Connor (Blithe Spirit), and Eryn Murman (Spring Awakening), Greenland explores an emotional landscape as raw as that of its namesake.
Performances of Greenland run February 4, 5, and 6, 2010 at 8:00 pm at The Bridge Theatre at Shetler Studios (244 W 54th St., between Broadway and 8th Ave., Subway: C/E to 50th St.; 1 or B/D to 59th St./Columbus Circle).
Admission is a suggested donation of $10. Reservations are recommended. To reserve a seat, E-mail email@example.com.
Founded in 2004, The Bridge Theatre Company is a New York City-based ensemble of Canadian and American theatre artists dedicated to the cross-border development, workshop and production of new plays. The company examines the relationship between these two contemporary theatrical cultures through the work of emerging playwrights, actors and directors. Through its New Play Development program, the Bridge accepts a wide variety of script submissions from writers in the United States and Canada, hoping to discover and develop new plays that may examine everything from the bridges between two nations to the bridges between two people.
