Theatre of the New Heart presents: The Photo
Written by: Dana Rayment
Directed by: Michelle Kennedy
Making its world premier at C103 (Formerly Catalyst Theatre, 8529 Gateway Blvd). The Photo features Elena Porter and Michael Peng under the direction of Sterling Award Nominee Michelle Kennedy.
Drama is supposed to be on stage, not in the home and not in the heart of new parents Gina and Mark. THE PHOTO begins 15 minutes after the most arresting moment of their lives. Nothing seems real. Time is suspended: sped up, slowed down all at once. How to make sense? What to do? Where to find comfort and begin to cope?
Coping for Gina is getting out a camera and capturing all the moments of their precious daughter Aurora’s life. For Mark, it’s being in the moment with Gina and Aurora.
THE PHOTO is a love story.
THE PHOTO is a mystery.
THE PHOTO is a story about two people just trying to find their place in a world that has redefined them in an instant.
