A 2 weekend workshop production became a beautiful rendering. I’m very proud of cast, team, and happy that we showed that Lloyd Pace’s script is as poetic and melancholically funny as we thought it was.

Creative Team: Katrin Hilbe (direction), Sarah Edkins (set), Cathy Small (costumes), Justin Partier (lights), Andy Evan Cohen (sound), Haejin Han (TD), Anastasia Gamick (SM)

Hilbe holds a moment in time. Deliberately confusing past and present, she is able to create intense anxiety in a post-apocalyptic landscape. All the artists find moments of deep humor in the chaos of their thoughts. Poirier and Tilton are live in black and white. Halper and Perabo, the ghosts, are in Oz-color. Even the subtle lighting effects by Justin Partier tone the set to create and match moods. 912 Oz is a moving tone poem about haunting.
