I was recently cast in WNEP Theater’s next production, which is titled The (edward) Hopper Project, and will be directed by the AWG himself, Don Hall. Performances will take place at the DCA Storefront Theater, 66 E Randolph in downtown Chicago.
There’s lots more info about the project and how it came into existence over at WNEP’s website, so I won’t go too much into detail here, except that 9 writers in the WNEP family (Mary Jo Bolduc, Jen Ellison, Bob Fisher, Tom Flanigan, Don Hall, Merrie Greenfield, Joe Janes, Cholley Kuhaneck, and Rebecca Langguth) wrote pieces inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper. The result is a lovely, episodic script about brief encounters, long-awaited reunions, missing pieces, and burning subtext. The kinds of moments whose importance can’t be known until days, months, years later. Or, as I phrased it at an early reading: “This is life, as you missed it.” (I don’t even really know what that means, but I thought it sounded apt somehow.)
