Miranda from Stormville asks: how do we escape circumstances we can’t avoid? How do we continue on when hope is lost? Just miles outside New York City, Miranda’s rural America may as well be a stranded island: is she destined to only experience life through the books she constantly devours? Or does her ailing father, with his self-professed powers, and a caretaker with a flair for the dramatic have bigger plans in store?
The cast features Anna Cain, Brendan Cataldo, James A Pierce III, Mackenzie Menter, Gabe Templin and Richard Wayne.
Produced by Random Access Theatre - Part of IRT’s 3B Development Series
This year’s line-up showcases a wide range of topics including, Japanese dance, dating after 50, a close-knit Pentecostal family, a female coal miner, transitioning, politics, ex Mormon’s, coming-of-age stories, and a dead armadillo.
Visit the theater any evening during Emerging Artists New Work Series and you will find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a company showcasing traditional and non-traditional dance from another country; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Each show is followed by a brief talkback that allows artists to get feedback from the audience.
