Performances May 16 – May 20th at 8pm
Studio at West of Lenin, Fremont
NEW FOR 2017, Forward Flux Productions is proud to introduce the Studio 45 workshop series. Studio 45 gives a creative team 4 weeks to workshop a brand new play, with 5 public performances. In addition, audiences will have the opportunity to attend select open rehearsals for an insiders’ look at bringing a new play to life. The public performances will have basic design elements (set / lights / costumes), but the focus is on acting craft and storytelling. After each workshop performance, there will be an optional 20min conversation between the audience and the creative team to gather feedback about the play.
For our inaugural Studio 45 production, we are presenting Pilgrims, by Claire Kiechel. Claire will be joining us in person for a portion of the rehearsals and for the final performance on May 20th, and we will be collaborating with her closely throughout the Studio 45 process. Pilgrims was on the Kilroy List in 2016. The play will be rehearsed and performed in the Studio space at West of Lenin (upstairs).
About the play:
“On a ship to colonize a newly discovered planet, a soldier and a teenage girl find themselves quarantined together in a cabin and are forced to explore their own traumatic pasts and roles in a dying society.”
Drama / Psychological Thriller
Run time: 90mins, no intermission
