The play Alice takes audiences to new worlds and different dimensions of reality through the use of video, sound, movement, and traditional theatrical storytelling techniques.
Alice tells of a young woman struggling within her own wild imagination as the real world around her crumbles. A mother tormented by her own ghosts, a father distracted, a brother trying to keep it all together, a friend she can't let in, and Alice must make a choice: up or down?
The ensemble cast features Caroline Calkins as Alice along side Rivka Borek, Jessica Carlsen, Savvy Clement, John DeSilvestri, Matt Roth, Nick Roesler, Franz Quitt, Lauren Weinberg, and Ali Rivera. Brian Hashimoto directs, assisted by Jay Spriggs.
The creative team includes illustrator Helen Bayer, lighting designer John Eckert (LA Weekly Best Lighting Design Award recipient), costume designer Lisa Renee Jordan (New York Musical Theatre Festival - Design Award, Drama Desk award nominee), director of video Ayberk Sak, sound designer Jay Spriggs, marketing/PR by way of Heather Kane, and technical director Maximus Thaler.
. Alice will be appearing as part of the BoCoCa Arts Festival in Brooklyn, New York. The BoCoCa Arts Festival strives to encourage community engagement though theatre, music, and visual art in the Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens area of Brooklyn.
