we need new forms. if we can’t have them, it’s better to have nothing. summer heat. a dead bird. the struggle to make art. kostya puts on a play. the play goes a little wrong. his mother doesn’t like it. what’s it about? the girl from across the lake wants to be an actress. the famous writer just wants to go fishing. everybody wants to be somebody they’re not. nobody’s in love with the person they should be. Chekhov hid backstage at the premiere because no one understood his play. not much has changed.

FORTH FROM THE NORTHERN SKIES

An original musical
Directed by Allison Breeze '19*
*Senior Project Members: George Luton '19, Allison Breeze '19, Lindsay Matheos '19, Jacqui Anders '19, Raphe Gilliam '19, Emily Drossell '19
An inventor and her colleague venture to the frozen wasteland at the top of the world to research the arctic circle’s prehistoric inhabitants, hoping that they may discover the secret to curing the epidemic that is plaguing their city. They convince an investor to join them and assemble a crew with tangled histories. Haunted by figures from their intertwining past, the members of this expedition wrestle with capital interest, scientific absolutism and spiritual fulfillment as they encounter both precious minerals and deadly plagues entrapped within the ice, and the northern lights shine overhead. An original work by George Luton '19 and Emily Drossell '19.
