In & Between is his first original production.
About the Play
In & Between was created as a writing exercise in a playwriting class in 2013. The inspiration? A black and white photograph of a man carrying a cello down a winding forest path.
In the 18 months since that class, the script was developed into a short play which premiered as a reading during The Wesleyan Playmarket Series in February 2014. From that workshop presentation, a full-length, one-act play was created, work-shopped during the summer and now presented as a two-act play.
Featured in the cast are freshman theatre major Jacob Myers, senior theatre major Kaila Saffle and theatre alumnus Jeremy Jackson.
In & Between is directed by Connie Whitt-Lambert with technical direction by Bryan Stevenson. The production team includes stage manager Kelsey Manuel, costume designer Kaila Saffle, set/properties designer Heather O’Donnell, lighting designer Jonathan Jones and publicity/graphics designer Madalyn Russell.
