SEASON 7 - 2012
The Workshop Series
The Greater Good by Rebecca Gorman O'Neill
Directed by Susan Lyles
Starring Lorenzo Sariñana, Jennifer Falleto, Zacharey A. Page, Stefin Wolliver, and Meghan Westcombe
In this series we work in an open rehearsal process with the playwright in residence for a period of 2 weeks. At the end of the two weeks the script is performed on its feet with script in hand, suggested costume, props and lights. This process gives the playwright the opportunity to see how her play flows both in movement and words, and gives her a chance to rewrite with feedback from the director and actors-a truly collaborative process.
