Constellations

Written by Nick Payne.
Directed by Todd Hennessey
Presented by RCA Theatre Company, Produced by Hard Ticket Theatre
Performances on – February 23rd – February 25th 2017

Constellations is a two-person show that presents a single relationship, between the characters Marianne and Roland, as a series of possibilities. The characters are seen to recreate, slightly, several important moments from their relationship. They meet, fall in love, get married or they meet, don’t fall in love, and don’t get married. They stay together, they break up. It’s an ingenious piece of theatre that allows for multiple views of the same two people. Central to the story that slowly unfolds, is that the couple is also forced to deal with the ultimate reality of life: death.

Kate Crackerberry is a wonderful story from Scotland collected in the Orkney Islands about the love between two stepsisters, a sheep’s head, and a prince under a fairy spell.  Kate is good, kind and clever enough to survive in the woods, gain work in a palace, and take care of her sister. She rescues her sister from an evil enchantment and outwits the fairies to save the prince from a wasting sickness. Working with a compact team in a devised process, we employ 4 multi-talented artists who use image, puppet animation, movement, and music in a collaborative artistic process to create the stories, puppets, props, and instruments in the production.

Music by Diana Daly
Performed by Diana Daly and Louise Moyes
Directed by Anne Troake
Produced by RCA Theatre Company
Performances on – June 8th – June 18th 2017 [With no performance on June 12th]

Kitty and Daniel Daly of Riverhead, St. Mary’s Bay, had 12 children, six of whom were very tall and six of whom had achondroplasia, formerly known as dwarfism, and now known as people of short stature.

The Daly Family Collective – their great-granddaughter (and great-niece), singer-songwriter Diana Daly, dancer-actor Louise Moyes, and director/ collaborator Anne Troake have been asked to tell their stories.

In a journey of friendship and song, Diana and Louise bring the Daly family’s memories to life through powerful images, tales, songs, dance, laughter, and a bit of Carlton Showband! If a Place Could Be Made is a story about family, strong personalities, great faith, inclusion, expansion, and making the best out of what we have been given.

“Great show and remarkable story…disarming, honest, and uplifting.” (Audience feedback)
