Video Promo by Magic Spoon Productions: STORM STILL by Gabrielle Reisman, September 8 - 24, 2017
Video by Magic Spoon Productions.
The VORTEX proudly presents the world premiere of Gabrielle Reisman’s Storm Still on our Outdoor Stage. Three daughters gather in the backyard at dusk following the death of their father. As they divide up his belongings, they remember a game they used to play-- a game about an old king who broke his kingdom apart while he was still alive, who lost his mind to age, grief and recrimination, and whose daughters turned against one another. As the three sisters transform into the cast of one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, they confront their own guilt, anger and loss with backyard beers, toasts with the audience, and making fun of how annoying Edgar is, when you think about him.
CAST: VORTEX resident artists Jennifer Coy Jennings as Regan, Andreá Smith as Goneril, and Amelia Turner as Cordelia.
PRODUCTION TEAM: Directed by VORTEX Associate Artistic Director Rudy Ramirez, who first brought these three women together in his production of LEAR in 2011. Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon, Lighting Design by Patrick Anthony, Sound Design by David DeMaris, and Props/Costume Design by Indigo Rael. Filmed and edited by Magic Spoon Productions.
