Twilight Theater Company, the community theater that brings you “Entertainment with Edge”, announces its upcoming staging of Body Awareness, by Annie Baker, opening on May 3, 2019.
Advisory: This performance contains partial nudity and adult content and themes. It is not appropriate for children 17 and younger.
In this dramatic comedy written by Pulitzer-prize winner Annie Baker, It’s Body Awareness Week on a Vermont college campus and Phyllis, the organizer, and her partner, Joyce, are hosting one of the guest artists in their home: Frank, a portrait photographer famous for his female nude works. Both his presence in the home and his chosen subject instigate tension from the start. Phyllis is furious at his photography; however, Joyce is actually rather intrigued by the whole thing, even going so far as to contemplate posing for him. As Joyce and Phyllis bicker, Joyce’s adult son, who displays some symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome but refuses to be examined by a therapist, struggles to express himself physically – with heartbreaking results.
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.
