Don Nigro joins Look at the Fish Theatre Company as they present his THE GENESIS COLLECTION OF PLAYS
Look at the Fish Theatre announces playwright Don Nigro has joined the company, which is presenting THE GENESIS COLLECTION OF PLAYS, written by Don Nigro, performed in its entirety for the first time at One Sky Performance Space in Manhattan.
“I'm very pleased to be a part of the Look At The Fish Theatre Company,” Nigro remarks, “They investigate the text and trust the text. That's very important to me. I think they will do brave, honest, and good work.” Nigro is one of independent theatre’s most prolific playwrights, penning over 300 plays. THE GENESIS COLLECTION OF PLAYS represents a group of monologues that focus on “the idea of creation,” says Lombardo, “the common theme of creation links the group monologues, represented in what creation means to each of the characters.”
The characters featured in THE GENESIS COLLECTION OF PLAYS are interconnected in their unique takes on the idea of creation. They range from a mad woman’s fears of a future where earth’s resources vanish along with its value of human life to a young woman whose obsession with Frankenstein and the gothic period leads her to create her own reality within the myths she loves. “Monologues are rarely done anymore in performance,”
The Genesis Collection of Plays is directed by Evan Daves and Thomas James Lombardo and features: Colby Minifie*, Rachel Troy, Thomas James Lombardo, Becky Bush, Ridley Parson*, Mervyn Morris, Dana Kraft* and Maia Sage.
