Theater of the First Amendment- STAY
This innovative performance piece merges theater, dance, SLAM multimedia, and music to wrestle with the issue of impermanence and all the ways we long for things, people, and life to simply STAY. Set on a remote island surrounded by stones, sea and sky, STAY explores generations of a family. Conceived by choreographer Susan Shields and playwright Heather McDonald, this stirring production is presented by Mason’s professional theater in residence, an award-winning company that collaborates with some of the best playwrights, directors, and actors in our region. Directed by Heather McDonald.
