Fringe takes over Greenfield! 8 short shows, 8 venues, all in walking distance. October 16 and 17, 2015!! See as many as you can, maps/info on the Common.
Wheelhouse @ 289 Main Street
Innocent Kind of Love by Rachel F. Hirsch directed by Kathryn B. McNall. A dark story that explores the expectations and standards we put on love in today's society. Do we choose love or does love choose us?
Jack's Studio @ 9 Mill Street
Staged reading of Breastless by Laurel Turk, directed by Melissa Redwin. One woman's determinedly truthful exploration of body image and sexuality after double mastectomy. Intimate monologues are juxtaposed with wry humor, song, and movement. Anyone with a body will find something to relate to in this piece. (Not recommended for children under 13.)
4th Floor Artsblock @ 289 Main Street
John Reese is directing The Sand Box by Edward Albee, Shel Silverstein's The Best Daddy, and The Tarantino Variation, playwright Seth Kramer's tribute to the disturbing spirit of Quentin Tarantino's artistry. Often dark, always funny, and perpetually witty examinations of the human condition performed by nine of the Valley's most talented local actors.
Artsblock @ 289 Main Street
Written by Emma Ayres. A curious writer with a tape recorder finds an old woman and preserves her memories of a small town gone, as if in amber. While The Water Project is written about the Quabbin Valley, 1920's-1949's, water has always been a currency used by the rich to control the poor.
GCTV @ 393 Main Street
Directed by Chris Rohmann. You walk into a room and can't remember what you came for, right? In Robert Anderson's funny, sweet one-act, an old - very old - married couple have trouble even remembering each other's names. In their rockers (but not quite off them) they reminisce about the past, arguing over their hilariously unreliable versions of it.
Hope and Olive Upstairs @ 44 Hope Street
Another Chance, Name Tag, and Attention Is Inevitable. Three short one-act plays written, directed and performed by graduates of the Greenfield Center School 8th Grade co-directed by Bob Strachota. These teens have created a sophisticated and exciting night of theater that are suitable for all audiences.
345 Main Street @ Downstairs
Genuine Cousin of Pearl by Jonathan Caws-Elwitt and directed by John Bruner. A slightly surreal, more than slightly silly new one-act comedy featuring eccentric cousins, a hereditary ticket booth, and a thoroughly Grouchoesque family lawyer. When the death of an ancient grandmother reunites Pearl with her cousins the family absurdity comes into full flower.
Studio Seven @ 229-231 Main Street
Silverthorne Theater Two related one-act plays by Jane Anderson. Lynette Has Beautiful Skin and Lynette At 3 A.M. Two dramedies that explore the emotional needs and frustrations, from the title character's perspective, of a contemporary young couple in a romantic relationship.
Friends, We are proud to offer our fifth annual Double Take Fringe Festival. We love taking over the City of Greenfield with the wondrous talent of our local artists.
