January 29, 2013
Three students, a recent alumnus, a faculty member and a staff member – all from the University's Ira Brind School of Theater Arts – are featured in the production of "Landscape of the Body," on stage March 7 – 31 at the Walnut Street Theatre's Studio 5.
A witty and gritty thriller by John Guare, author of "The House of Blue Leaves" and "Six Degrees of Separation," "Landscape of the Body" stars students Francesca Chappius '13 (Acting), Merri Rashoyan '13 (Acting) and Robin Friend Stift '13 (Acting); recent grad Andrew Carroll BFA '12 (Acting); and UArts staffer Darin Dunston, assistant to the director of the Brind School. Adjunct Assistant Professor Neill Hartley is the play's director.
Presented by Isis Productions, "Landscape of the Body" tells the story of a childlike woman who comes to New York to search for her own identity amidst a landscape of destruction and loss. It's part comedy, part mystery and part vaudevillian musical – a vibrant and unsettling portrait of the untold American experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
