Well, hello there, 2016! We were back in the friendly confines of Judson Memorial Church to kick off our shiny new year with plays from Marielle Duke and Jason Tseng.

Playwrights: Marielle Duke (If Only I Knew How to Cross the Street Properly Or, An Anti­Guide to Avoiding An Untimely Death), Jason Tseng (Rizing)

Directors: Marielle, Emily Hartford

Actors: Jessica Angleskhan, Jeanette Bonner, Ken Glickfeld, August Schulenburg, Adam Swiderski, Isaiah Tanenbaum, Matthew Trumbull, C.L. Weatherstone

Highlights included:

  • Jessica channeling her inner six-year old as Silva in Marielle’s new play;
  • Emily’s in-the-round staging for the Brynne/Venture confrontation scene threw us all the way into the emotional turmoil of the scene;
  • Getting to act with Ken as Umet and the Man with the Soft, Little Voice respectively. Getting to play a ground-stomping discord troll of sadness? Wonderful. Getting to play that ground-stomping discord troll of sadness across from one of my favorite people? Priceless; and
  • The new Feast scene in Rizing.  This play will truly be a culinary experience…
