South Coast Repertory | Director: Daniella Topol
Rachel Bonds’ play focuses on the ideas of connection to your past, leaving that past for your future, and how the intersection of those ideas vary from person to person. The text itself was naturalistic, but the designs were much more theatrical. The music needed to find a balancing point between the two worlds, connecting to the emotion and psychology of the play while still remaining a bit aloof from it.
This piece opened the show.
This transition is abrupt and violent.
This transition is much cleaner and simpler.
