Mapping Moments: A Journey to the Sites of “The Suburbs”
Last week, on July 14, 2021, a limited audience got a chance to see the workshop performance of the three plays comprising Thrown Stone’s The Suburbs. Held in the Walled Garden at the Keeler Tavern Museum and History Museum, the audience got a glimpse into how these plays might begin to live within and interact with their site-specific locales. This was also a vital time for the director, actors, designers, and entire team to tour and understand these locations in greater depth, in preparation for the full production opening in August. If you are traveling to Ridgefield, have never visited these locations before, or are a seasoned local and just want to view these sites through new eyes, I invite you to join me on this walking tour.
These sites offer beauty, history, and intrigue, and we are excited for our team to begin working and playing in these spaces. We hope you will join us for our full production in August-September to experience theatre written specifically for, set, and performed at these iconic Ridgefield locales.
This season, Talia Hankin — Thrown Stone’s Literary Liaison, Intern, and Assistant Director of The Suburbs — will illuminate what goes on behind the scenes in a Small Professional Theatre as we bring three new plays from the page to the stage. Drawing from interviews and conversations with Thrown Stone creators, this series highlights the humans behind the work.
