Then, we're teaming up with Asheville Community Theater and The Friends of Pack Memorial Library to present two performances William Luce's The Belle of Amherst, about the singular Emily Dickinson, played by Sybil Rosen. Please join us at Lord Auditorium at Pack Memorial Library on October 26th at 2PM and 28th at 6PM. Suggested donation of $10.00 at the door; proceeds benefit public libraries.
And of course, we’re bringing you Live From WVL Radio Theater: It’s A Wonderful Life, for one Asheville performance only, at The Isis Restaurant and Music Hall. And if you can’t make it, try to catch us on tour!
In addition to our WVL Radio plays and our library fund-raiser, ITP will present Well, by Lisa Kron, as part of the MainStage Season at North Carolina Stage Company, where Immediate Theatre Project is the Partner Company in Residence.
Lisa wants to tell you a story about her and her mother. But it's not really ABOUT her mother. Or herself. Not REALLY. She says. And she insists that it's not a play, actually; it's a "theatrical exploration."
Lisa’s mother, Ann, does indeed have a story to tell; she is a Midwestern housewife who suffers from mysterious and debilitating allergies, but who still managed to create and/or preserve an integrated neighborhood in which to raise her kids. But as Lisa sets out to turn her life into a play, she discovers that she might not understand her mother or herself quite as well as she imagined.
This smart, funny, and imaginative play delves into the complexities of race relations, illness, memory, and the pitfalls of telling someone else's story.
Playing at NC Stage March 18 - April 12, 2020. Link to tickets above.
