Buffer

Today, Kristen goes “Inside” the mind of local playwright who is also the Playwright in Residence with Bckseet Productions. Catherine’s play “Losing The Shore”, now on stage at the “SkyBox” at The Adrienne! Stay Tuned!

Join politician Adlai Stevenson in his elegant shipboard stateroom between elections circa 1953 where within minutes of boarding, he is surprised by his mistress, Alicia Patterson. Guggenheim.

With manners at the forefront and a generational gap in the passenger list, Adlai and Alicia are left to defend the tumultuous wake they have left for their younger and equally troubled travelers Ruth, Tense, and Stuyvesant.

A historical fiction speculating about a real cruise taken by Stevenson, this ocean voyage parallels the sentencing of the Rosenbergs. With drinking, laughing and praying as their only solace, will the combined baggage of these five passengers make it to their new destination? Or, will their collective, yet fragmented red scare American psyche force them to lose sight of the shore?

This world premiere run will also feature a Monday Night Reading Series of Rush’s works under the direction of Michael Durkin.
