THE EDGE ENSEMBLE PRESENTS
TWO ONLINE THEATRICAL PRODUCTIONS FOR SUMMER 2021
The Edge Ensemble is preparing two online theatrical productions for the summer 2021 season. They will be released for free on YouTube one by one in May and June.
First up is Trifles, a one-act play by Susan Glaspell. This mystery drama is based on a true event that occurred in 1900, a murder that Glaspell wrote about as a journalist. The play is set in an Iowa farmhouse in 1912, and was first performed by the Provincetown Players at the Wharf Theatre in Provincetown, Massachusetts on August 8, 1916. The role of Mrs. Hale was performed by Susan Glaspell herself.
Directed by Kim Dupuis, the cast includes Catherine Behrens and Veda Crewe as the women who sympathize with and come to understand the condition of a woman accused of murdering her husband, and Damien Licata, Peter Eisenstadter, and Scott Aronowitz as the three men investigating the murder. David Teubner is the cinematographer and editor and Susan Sanders is the art director. Trifles will be available to view starting May 28, 2021, and will run through to the end of June.
Second up will be an original play by Dan Patterson, Incomplete. This exploration of what happens when characters created by a playwright take on lives of their own and begin asking fundamental questions concerning the human condition, with humor and thoughtfulness. Kim Dupuis is directing Dan Patterson, Damien Licata, Kenzie Yelin, Peter Eisenstadter, Catherine Behrens, Tracy Messer, and Susan Sanders. David Teubner is the cinematographer and editor and Susan Sanders is the art director. Incomplete will be available to view starting June 25, 2021, and will run through to the end of July.
David Teubner of KeeneOnline, who is filming and editing both productions, is quite excited about the challenges offered by both pieces, and he will be using his expertise to create some imaginative special effects using a green screen.
The Historical Society of Cheshire County is graciously allowing us to film these two pieces in its historical Bruder House.
