Space Junk at Brelby offers New Take on Classic Set Up
By: Brelby Theatre Company
"My first impression was apprehensive,"
Coen first started doing theatre in elementary school, and said, "This has always been my passion. Getting to work on an original script has helped me grow as an artist, and appreciate the art even more than I thought possible. The best part of the rehearsal process is getting to work with the playwright, throughout. Having background on the literal existence of the character I get the honor of playing, and using that to guide the choices I make, is incredible."
Hayla Stewart made her Brelby debut in Where Our Stuff Goes, Brelby's currently running show for young audiences. She has a BA in theatre from ASU. She has done Richard III, Macbeth, Twelfth Night, Asterion, True, and Finger Painting for Grown-Ups."
Stewart plays the part of Adrian, in Space Junk. "When I first read the script," she said, "I thought it was very clever. I loved the dynamic between the FBI agents and Sharon's character. I also enjoyed the tenderness that sneaks in between Luke and Adrian."
Coen added, "It's a very funny show and the amount of fun I've seen the actors have on stage will certainly spill out to anyone who comes to see it. As funny as it is, it does have it's share of tender, emotional moments that I think a lot of people can relate to. It's a very classic set up to a domestic comedy with a few space related twists thrown into the mix. So it's familiar, but not too familiar."
"People should come see this show," Stewart said, "because it's such a fun premise with comedy baked in and drizzled with the truth of human connection."
Coen concluded, "People should come see this show because it has everything. Love, friendship, hardship, and hilarity. Plus, you have to admit, the title intrigues you, doesn't it?"
