1998 | Mail
MultiStages was invited to participate in the Sackett Group’s Women’s Work Festival of women directors at the Phil Bosokowski Theatre in Winter 1998. Lorca Peress directed the New York City premiere of Stephen Bartell’s new play, Mail. This psychological drama features three men living in an unnamed jail-like location they cannot leave; their jealousy, loneliness, and obsession eventually leads to murder.
MultiStages focused on the unsettling psychological and abstract qualities of the piece through a complicated sound collage by Carl Heriem that merged George Antheill’s 1920’s classical piano work Ballet Mechanique with human voice, sounds, and music. The Cast featured: Stacie Dotson, Evan Lucaser, William Joseph Brookes.
