Get Involved: Let’s Bring This Enlivening Story To Life

We-Are-the-Body-script-photoIn April final preparations for the World Premiere of Andrew Kooman’s newest play WE ARE THE BODY will begin. Last minute adjustments will be made to designs, costumes fitted, sets constructed, the director, stage manager and actors will gather around the script and fill prompt books with notes.

A vital conversation about suffering and the human right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion…

In solitary confinement behind the Iron Curtain of post-war Romania, Elsie’s only companions are two other prisoners she cannot touch or see, tortured like her for their beliefs. They tap out messages in Morse code, triggering memories from Elsie’s former life, especially her love affair before the war. Past and present collide in this story that engages audiences in a vital conversation about the suffering of marginalized populations and the human right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
