Don't miss a free-yes FREE!-performance that is fun for the whole family. We're
expanding the walls of our intimate theatre by performing a special presentation of Steven Dietz's Still Life with Iris as a part of 3CDC's OTR Performs Series. This one-hour event will be held at 6:00 pm on July 19, 2015 at Washington Park.
Still Life with Iris
is a fantastical adventure that centers on a little girl's search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno--a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. The rulers of Nocturno, the Great Goods, are determined to have the "best" of everything on their island--and therefore take Iris away from her home and bring her to the Great Island to be their daughter, leaving her with no memory of her home or her family. Iris joins with friends she meets on her journey as she embarks on a quest to return to her family and her home. As the first play for young audiences to receive the Kennedy Center's Fund for New American Plays Award.
As a nod to Ensemble Theatre's upcoming 30th Anniversary Season,
the cast of Still Life With Iris is entirely comprised of former ETC acting interns, including: Jared D. Doren (1995-96), Sara Mackie and Burgess Byrd (1999-00), Daniel Winters (2004-05), Lisa DeRoberts (2010-11), Ben Raanan and Jared Earland (2013-14), and Molly Israel and Patrick Phillips (2014-15).
