BELLES: a play in two acts and forty-five phone calls
The Walker sisters, born and raised in Memphis, now live in six different US cities and communicate solely by phone. The eldest, Peggy, who remained with Mama in Tennessee, calls her siblings when their mother is hospitalized – nothing serious, she just ate some bad tuna – but the phone calls lead to often comedic and sometimes brutal confrontations about the past and the present.
BELLES is directed by Marisa Viola. Scenic design is by Jonathan W. Collins, costume design is by Emily DeAngelis, lighting design is by Jessica Greenberg and sound design is by Chris Rummel.
The Walker sisters are played by Laura Faith as Paige, Ashton Heyl as Aneece, Rebecca Lovett as Peggy, Kristi McCarson as Roseanne, Christina Shipp as Sherry, and Kelly Strandemo as Audrey
Proceeds from BELLES will benefit Joe’s House, a nonprofit organization providing a nation-wide online service that helps cancer patients and their families find lodging near treatment centers.
