Arlekin Players Theatre Presents The Stone
Arlekin Players Theatre will remount German playwright Marius von Mayenburg’s contemporary play The Stone September 13 – 29 performed in English at their theater at Studio 368 in Needham. Directed by Arlekin Players Theatre’s Artistic Director Igor Golyak (Elliot Norton Award-winning A Dead Man's Diary), the production was performed in Russian by the same cast in May and June."It’s a kind of theatre that not only crosses borders but also draws from a number of performance traditions: dance, spoken word, performance art, and modern music arrangement harmoniously intertwine in our performances to create unique and memorable productions.” Igor Golyak, Artistic Director In 1935, a young couple purchases a house from a Jewish family in Dresden, Germany. The play follows the lives of the house’s residents, who must grapple with their own identity while experiencing the reverberations created by 60 years of German history. As the house is passed from owner to owner, and generation to generation, the secrets buried in the garden and within the walls reveal themselves.The Stone Production design team features David R. Gammons (scenographer),Nastya Bugaeva (costume design), Jeff Adelberg (light design), Jakov Jakoulov(original score), Vladimir Gusev(video designer) and an eight-member cast including Jenya Brodskaia (Conductor #1), Misha Tyutyunik(Conductor #2 ),Olga Sokolova(Hannah),Viktoriya Kovalenko(Heidrun), Darya Denisova (Witha), Rimma Gluzman (Mieze), Anna Kovalenko (Stefanie), and David Gamarnik (Wolfgang).Arlekin Players Theatre was created in Boston in 2009 and has since toured to New York, Chicago, and Hartford, as well as to several international festivals. Arlekin takes strong pride in their emphasis on self-identity; they are a company of immigrants performing works that play on the ideas of cross-culture, home, and traditions, challenging the idea of nationality, and finding common themes that unite us all. Performances are in Russian, with simultaneous translation into English. The company makes its home in Needham, MA. For more information, visit www.arlekinplayers.com.
