FAILURE: A LOVE STORY Comes to The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep

The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep presents the heartbreaking romance, Failure: A Love Story as its next student production! By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead - expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures.

Director Benjamin Cole is eager to share the talents of his student cast. "The show offers some unique challenges for creative staging with characters like Front Door, Moses the ball python, December and Mae the feral monk parakeets, and even Cuckoo Clock," Cole reveals. "We're exploring storytelling in a way not often seen in youth theatre," he insists. Assistant Director Steve Smith adds, "This incredibly emotional script is both tragic and beautiful. It is a treat to work on with our students!" The show runs a sweet 90 minutes with no intermission and hopes to be the perfect date night for Valentine's week. Additional production staff includes Sound Designer, Caleb Foley; Stage Manager, Paul Smith; and Lighting and Projections Designer, Liam Sullivan.
