In an isolated Appalachian town, the hard-hewn folk return to their backwoods rituals to ward off threats from an increasingly hostile modern world. Will Lorna convince her mother to make the necessary sacrifice and prevent social and ecological disaster? Will the chilling Rite at Kerrmoor be repeated?
Harry and the Thief, by Sigrid Gilmer
Directed by Susan Stroupe
Jeremy has a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard. And a time machine. And a plan. Jeremy's plan is to send his thieving cousin Mimi back in time to 1863 to find Harriet Tubman and give her guns. Lots and lots of guns.
Created and performed by Bari Hochwald
May - June 2016
Net Worth takes the audience on a journey of humor, money management and self-reflection as they attend a workshop on personal finances sponsored by the Lions Club of Cleveland, OH. Moving quickly back and forth between teaching in the present and reliving the memories that each subject evokes, our character finds the strength to declare independence from her “Liabilities” and understand the values of her “Assets.” Based on the life experiences and struggles of balancing finances with living an artistic life, Bari has created a one-person show that brings laughter (and fear!) to the audience. A layered production, Net Worth is also an homage to the spirit of a grandfather never met, and to whom Bari turns for guidance and, ultimately, freedom from a legacy which no longer serves her dreams, and which never served his.
