Fringe takes over Greenfield! 8 short shows, 8 venues, all in walking distance. October 17 and 18, 2014!! See as many as you can, maps/info on the Common.
393 Main Street @ GCTV
Feeding the Moonfish focuses on the hypnotic push and pull of human relationships. Dark, dreamy, and poetic, the play explores the tenuous relationship between two young people isolated by trauma who find themselves together at the edge of a saltwater lake in the dead of night.
Greenfield Community College @ 270 Main Street
Enter an old growth forest in New England, mystical, majestic and enter a Brazilian rainforest, misty, humid and resplendent with color, simultaneously... >SCREECH-- REWIND....!!< Is this a past we can barely remember or is there still time to recover the beauty and diversity of creatures? Has progress and the pursuit of money- casinos, products, urban sprawl- taken over? Come see for yourself, from the sometimes hilarious points of view from iconic fairy tale forest characters; talk show hosts; live on the scene news; and the animals who inhabit these places...you may be one of them! A unique improv fairy tale musical in which YOU play a part.
16 Court Square @ 2nd Congo Church, Parish Room
By Stephen Wangh and directed by Chris Rohmann. As the house lights dim, Edith and Abe take their seats. She's eager to enjoy the next Fringe show on their program, he's wishing they'd stayed home. A smart, strange, excruciatingly funny new play that turns the theatergoing experience inside out, literally.
Hope and Olive Upstairs @ 44 Hope Street
Lori Holmes Clark and Company present new choreography with "Sing a Song of Sixpence..." as a jumping off point. With both dance and dessert explored and enjoyed during the performance, this is indeed a Sweet Slice of Life!
9 Mill Street @ Jack Golden's Studio
Passport Theatre Company presents a premiere production of Stephanie Carlson's new short play, Have You Seen Charlie? Based on a true story, an old school farmer meets his match when Charlie the cat comes to visit. A poignant comedy about family, farms and felines.
Artspace @ 15 Mill Street
Abaga (The Future) tells the story of two sets of lovers torn apart by the ethnic turmoil that has characterized much of middle Eastern history. Why do the experiences of repression and prejudice by one generation not lead to better understanding and tolerance of the next one? How can we break the cycles of violence that tear apart whole populations? Torange Yeghiazarian's short play addresses but does not answer these wrenching questions.
Second Floor @ 393 Main Street
When a lonely retiree discovers the world's most famous poet, her rigid outlook on life changes drastically, giving her a second chance at fate. Greg Josselyn guides you through a story about devastatingly lyrical desires with nods to film noir, mystery, and bad poetry in a serene evening of mindful catastrophes.
16 Federal Street @ Community Yoga
Witty repartee and farcical antics drive this tale of an egotistical and ambitious painter, his sardonic and level-headed sister, and the influential gallery owner who pays them a surprise visit. There's only one thing standing between Alan Plum and the fame he craves, and it's the cherished object at the center of his unfinished masterpiece, a can of yams
