Theatre Productions: 2022-23 Season
Fall Show:The Shadow Box
by Michael Cristofer
directed by Mark Owsley
November 10, 11, 12 & 18, 19, 2022
Joe, Brian, and Felicity come from different walks of life, different parts of the
country, and are in different stages of accepting the things they have in common:
they are all dying of cancer, and they are all living out their final days, in company
with friends and family, in homey hospice cottages on the green and pleasant grounds
of a large California hospital. They are observed, studied, and counseled by an invisible
Interviewer as they talk candidly about their emotional and physical struggles, and
face interpersonal challenges: Joe’s wife Maggie, in denial about her husband’s impending
death, refuses to go inside his cottage; artistic Brian, busy trying to write and
paint enough for twelve lifetimes, must mediate between his ex-wife Beverly and his
boyfriend Mark; and Felicity, confused and in pain, refuses to die until she gets
a visit from her daughter Claire -- a daughter who has been dead for years. Michael
Cristofer’s sensitive, emotionally devastating, ground-breaking play exploring the
end of life experience won both a Tony Award for Best Play and a Pulitzer Prize for
Drama in 1977.
