Other Bodies

Other Bodies
by August Schulenburg
Directed by Heather Cohn

August 2008
presented at CSV Cultural Center, Flamboyan Theatre

Cast: Christina Shipp, Vince Nappo

Creative Team: Jason Paradine, Set and Lighting Design; Tiffany Clementi & Hanna Rose Peck, Costume Design; Asa Wember, Sound Design; Cat Adler-Josem, Stage Manager; Ingrid Nordstrom, Dramaturg

The Story: The play follows Terry, a notorious player, whose pursuit of a mysterious woman leads to obsession and violence. What begins as a seductive battle of the sexes deepens into a haunting parable of the way our bodies betray us.

August Schulenburg’s Other Bodies is a superb piece of theatre. One could say it is one of the most intelligent and perceptive works to have taken the indie theater stage this year, and that would still not be doing the play justice.

Brilliantly played by Vince Nappo, Terry starts the two-and-a-half-hour drama as a womanizing advertising executive whose job, not so coincidentally, is to sell feminine products. Soon, he has set his sights on his new ice queen boss

The superb first act, mostly focused on issues of gender identity, is thought-provoking and enormously entertaining
