opening night: The Prairie Plays

Tonight, we open The Prairie Plays, an evening of theatre composed of two beautiful one-act plays by Brian Watkins. 

Watkins performed his one-man show High Plains at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2009 and reprises that performance here under the direction of Wide Eyed company member Anthony Reimer. 

The second play in the cycle, My Daughter Keeps Our Hammer, is a two-woman show performed by Katie Schorr and company member Amy Lee Pearsall.  Tonight's performance marks its world premiere and is directed by our Artistic Director, Kristin Skye Hoffmann.

We're relieved to report our final tech/dress rehearsal was fairly uneventful and are thrilled to bits with the beautiful lighting design by Joe Novak and soundscape by Trevor Dallier. 

The Prairie Plays runs through November 21 at Under St. Mark's Theater in NYC.  Curtain is at 7:00 p.m. Thursday - Saturday and is at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.  Run time is 2 hours.  Tickets / Information available here.
