The Service Road

Collaboration with Adhesive Theatre Project:

The Play

 

Director Meghan Finn  seamlessly blends Erin Courtney’s writing with sparse poetic language with the highly visual multi-media spectacle that you’ve come to expect from Adhesive Theater Project.  With the introduction of a bunraku-video puppet and Michael Riccio’s gravity defying set, Adhesive Theater Project once again proves why our work is described as “Nothing short of extraordinary!”

 

Description

A violent storm of mythic proportions hits Prospect Park.  The once peaceful service road  where a nature guide gives tours turns strange and even savage as she attempts to find a lost child.  On her quest she meets the denizens of one of the few natural places left in a large city.  The nature guide is a modern day Hercules – very strong, very loyal, a little thick, and trying to do penance for a very bad thing she had done when she was out of her mind.  Obie award winning playwright (Map of Virtue) Erin Courtney examines what it means to be of service and the true nature of forgiveness.
