In Daniel Robert’s hands, Annie again works together with the brilliant Erik Endsley (Nu.ance Theatre’sTalk in my experience Such as the Rain, Antigone), who’s been referred to as getting “pathos and superbly etched subtext” to his figures. A Philadelphia actor, Erik and Annie both attended the College from the Arts together, and Erik had made an appearance in Flashpoint’s Slip/Shot and REV Theatre’s Carthaginians, before getting to New york city to carry on his studies at John DeSotelle Studio.
Jane does not understand what related to the literary character that has adopted residence in her own bath tub. She does not want Ophelia stifling the obsessive order of her existence with obnoxious tunes about dying and valentines. She does not want Ophelia disrupting her exposure to Edmund, the oddly charming actor who might appear for supper inside a suit…of armor. And she or he most certainly does not want Ophelia stirring up recollections of the brother she’d rather forget. But Ophelia does not worry about what Jane wants a lot as what she needs. As Jane’s past intrudes precariously on her behalf present, it might be obvious that Ophelia isn’t just a character from Town, however a lengthy-forgotten messenger having a question from Jane’s own troubled mind: How can you move ahead when reconciliation isn’t an option?
In Recognition of Suicide Prevention week, Drowning Ophelia is going to be donating part of the collected tickets sales in the September tenth &lifier eleventh performances to world wide web.imalive.org.
