Time Event Title
7:30 pm Apr 2ndThe Drowning at Red Rock (World Premiere) - Canceled TBA
Conceived and directed by Janeve West; devised and developed by the company. In the 1960’s the Army Corp of Engineers built the Red Rock Reservoir as a flood control measure along the Des Moines River and the river changed course. As a result, six towns sank to the bottom of what would become the largest lake in Iowa. Collectively, these towns are known as the “Lost Towns of Lake Red Rock.” Inspired by the foundations, spires, and doorframes beneath the waters, The Drowning at Red Rock will be a devised production; collectively written by the ensemble. Using the techniques of documentary, verbatim and testimonial theatre, we will use court records, maps, interviews, articles and letters as the basis for our fictional story. The result will be an exploration of the clash of economics and the environment, power and privilege, holding-on and letting go. Time will tell what characters will emerge from our efforts. We do know that they will grapple with what happens when identity, hope and fear is lost, buried, hidden, stolen or drowned.

2:00 pm Apr 5thThe Spitfire Grill - Canceled TBA
By Fred Alley, James Valcq, and Lee David Zlotoff Directed by Caroline Price A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah's Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin' at the Spitfire Grill.
