Catch Frank Harts at Abrons Arts Center for two weeks

Empathy School / Love Story
Opens Tomorrow For Two Weeks OnlyClick for tickets. 

Two performance works about bodies, landscape and memory, presented at Abrons Arts Center. Both have original music and some of it is played live, beautifully.

Jim Findlay and Frank Harts are the actors.

EMPATHY SCHOOL was made for Jim Findlay, literally. I wrote this while I was living in Illinois and riding the bus a lot (long story). I thought, Jim can make harrowing so warm and delightful. He does. We first performed Empathy School on a bus upstate in 2014.
LOVE STORY is performed by Frank Harts. In 2007, this piece was made of cassette tape, photographs, an audio walk, and some writing I put together for Fusebox. Now it’s Frank, an actor who can make the smallest move or gesture seem epic. He plays the grid-walking sympathetic stalker of this little big city.


These performances are supported by the Howard Gilman Foundation, The Barbara Bell Cummings Memorial Fund, Princeton University, and individual donors. Love Story was previously presented at ASU Gammage. Empathy School was commissioned by EMPAC, funded by MAP and developed at The Orchard Project. Aaron Landsman is a playwright-in-residence at Abrons. Thanks and praise be.

Erica Fae at Nashville Film Festival with TO KEEP THE LIGHT

Congrats to Erica Fae at Nashville Film Festival for her film “TO KEEP THE LIGHT.”

“Women dominate this year’s New Directors category, but there’s something for everyone as the newest filmmakers give us their best. To Keep the Light (8 p.m. April 19; 1:15 p.m. April 20), Erica Fae’s slow-burning period drama, follows salt-of-the-earth Abbie, who is tasked with tending to a lighthouse on a remote Maine island during her husband’s illness. Fae, who also stars in the film, has garnered praise for her work in theater, and it shows: She reveals her character through exacting body language that makes her situation visceral. Inspired by true stories of women lighthouse keepers in the 1800s, To Keep the Light is beautifully shot, building tension against the harsh landscape, and Fae proves to be a true new talent.”
