Whom do you love?
What do you love?
How do you love?
And why?

THE WEIRD PLAY, one of 10 recipients nationwide of the inaugural Writers Alliance Grant from the Dramatists Guild Foundation, lives in the space between romance and devotion.

“THE WEIRD PLAY is a contemplation of first love, the ecstasy of love, really bad love, self love, religious love, the end of love, moving on from love. It’s different from anything I’ve ever done, putting into play every aspect of theatre I’ve been afraid of taking on.” – Playwright Jenifer Nii, author of WALLACE, THE SCARLET LETTER, SUFFRAGE, RUFF! and KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

Featuring Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin, Susanna Florence and April Fossen.

Designed by Cheryl Cluff (sound), Jaron Hermansen (lighting), Phil Lowe (costumes), Arika Schockmel (props). Stage managed by Jennifer Freed. Directed by Alex Ungerman.

A co-production with Sackerson.

Samantha will share her process and facilitate others in their art-making. She will share her unique method of painting:  rollers not brushes, tables instead of easels, lots of paint and water, canvas manipulation and plaster, sand and wood shavings to create ethereal, textured abstracts.
