February 9th -18th
a new play Ben Jolivet
directed by Kate McAllister
Synopsis: A blast of cold could save her, or shatter them all completely.
Facing the loss of their only child, Ellie and Jane hunt for hope. But when Jane suggests cryogenics as a way of holding back the inevitable, Ellie tailspins. Forced to make a choice under unbearable circumstances, faced with the minutiae of every day life, and taxed by the weirdness of the human brain, this couple comes together, breaks apart, and grapples with the right thing to do in a situation with no guidepost. At Ellie’s lowest, a chatty and exhausted young nurse manages to provide unexpected insight, but this decision could leave this once-happy couple in the cold.
The production will be directed by Kate McAllister, her first time directing at the Tesseract Theatre Company. The cast will feature local actors: Erika Cockerham, Rae Davis, and Katie Palazzola. Set design by Brittanie Gunn. Lighting design by Kevin Bowman.
