White Heron Theatre Co. 2020 Season
The Lifespan of a Fact
1st Reh. 6/2/19,
JIM: A fact checker. Extremely high I.Q., utterly earnest, well-intentioned and tireless. Rules, protocols, algorithms and facts guide him in life. Confident but never arrogant.
JOHN: One of the world's greatest living essayists. Highly intelligent and often frustrated by what he views as trivial concerns -- "trivial," to him, meaning those things that are not in direct contact with beauty and the divine.
EMILY: Editor-in-Chief at a high-end Manhattan magazine.
1st Reh. 6/24,
BRINDSLEY MILLER: A young sculptor (mid-twenties), intelligent and attractive, but nervous and uncertain of himself.
CAROL MELKETT: His fiancée. A young debutante; very pretty, very spoiled; very silly. Her sound is that unmistakable, terrifying deb quack.
MISS FURNIVAL: A middle-aged lady. Prissy and refined. Clad in the blouse and sack skirt of her gentility, her hair in a bun, her voice in a bun, she reveals only the repressed gestures of the middle- class spinster - until alcohol undoes her.
COLONEL MELKETT: CAROL's commanding father. Brisk, barky, yet given to sudden vocal calms which suggest a deep and alarming instability. It is not only the constant darkness which gives him his look of wide-eyed suspicion.
HAROLD GORRINGE: The bachelor owner of an antique-china shop, and BRINDSLEY's neighbor, HAROLD comes from the North of England. His friendship is highly conditional and possessive: sooner or later, payment for it will be asked. A specialist in emotional blackmail, he can become hysterical when slighted, or (as inevitably happens) rejected. He is older than BRINDSLEY by several years
SCHUPPANZIGH: A German refugee, chubby, cultivated, and effervescent. He is an entirely happy man, delighted to be in England, even if this means being employed full time by the London Electricity Board.
CLEA: BRINDSLEY's ex-mistress. Mid-twenties; dazzling, emotional, bright and mischievous. The challenge to her to create a dramatic situation.
GEORG BAMBERGER: An elderly millionaire art collector, easily identifiable as such. Like the Electrician, he is a German.
The Glass Menagerie
1st Reh. 7/22,
Amanda Wingfield - Laura and Tom's mother. A proud, vivacious woman, Amanda clings fervently to memories of a vanished, genteel past.
Laura Wingfield - Amanda's daughter and Tom's sister. Tom Wingfield - Amanda's son and Laura's brother.
Jim O'Connor - An old acquaintance of Tom and Laura.
