Tacoma Little Theatre and empathos co. are proud to present and evening of two one-act productions, The Art of Remembering, by Adina L. Ruskin, and Mountain Language, by Harold Pinter. Both are directed by Chevi Chung. This production will take place on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:30pm.
Family, immigration, memory, and language are shared themes in both plays that seek to confront the past while also raising awareness of contemporary social and political issues. The Art of Remembering is about Rebecca, a grieving woman who returns home to bury her father. The character of Rebecca is portrayed by three actors who travel through time and myriad of memories in a non-linear fashion. Mountain Language is set in an unknown prison, examines human rights, expression of words, and is told in a linear narrative.
This evening of staged readings features: Deanna Martinez (Rebecca), Laurice Roberts (Reba), and Deya Ozburn (Becky) in The Art of Remembering. Aya Hashiguchi (Elderly Woman), Vaneiya Miller (Young Woman), Brittany D. Henderson (Sergeant), Mariesa Bus (Officer), Emily Cohen (Prisoner), Mark Peterson (Guard), and John Levi III (Hooded Man) in Mountain Language. Alana Fineman (Stage Manager) is on point to read the stage directions for each play.
Tickets for the April 26, 2018 performance at 7:30pm are $10.00 for non TLT Members, and FREE for those who are members. Tickets may be purchased online at www.tacomalittletheatre.com, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.
