From Aspie Works Founder Justin Rielly:
Another year is about to wrap up, and 2015 is waiting in the wings!
The first half will be a rather quiet one, but stay tuned if that changes with any project news.
Activity will kick off in June with two major shows. The first is Vivien Leigh: The Last Press Conference, with Aspie Works teaming with the acclaimed film-based theater group Screen Plays, its director Karen Tuccio (the recent Geva-staged The Man Who Came to Dinner) and leading lady Marcy Savastano as the Oscar-winning British legend. The show will be performed on June 4-7.
The second will be the reading of the new original play Ghost Light, about a theater producer who finds his building (also his home) threatened by a politician who wants to tear it down for a dollar store – unless the theater’s resident ghost, a dead actress, has any say.
August will also feature the debut of the original The Writer’s Fairytale, using the fairytale world to describe the parts of a story – or something like that. Shorter works will also be performed.
The 2015 Rochester Fringe Festival will have the company’s return into the work of famed monologist Spalding Gray, with the performance of his legendary work Swimming to Cambodia – which looks at Gray’s travels in Asia while making the 1984 Vietnam War drama The Killing Fields.
The year will wrap in December with the new original work A Holiday Trilogy, a collection of three holiday one-acts, to be co-produced with the Flower City Repertory Company and directed by its founder Don Bartalo.
