Actress, starring Talia Kodesh, directed by Daniel Geddes and produced by Collett Dawson, is a musical dramedy, the story of a woman trying to define (and succeed in) her different roles – actress, wife, mother, daughter, teacher, and more – while juggling the complexities of all of those responsibilities. The show features eight original songs by Bruce Dennill.
The story takes place in New York and South Africa, following Actress on her journey through stress and success, anger and auditions, triumph and tears, dance and delirium and, perhaps, the possibility of peace. There is also assistance and emotional support from an unexpected source…
It’s a tale that anyone who has ever had to adjust to new expectations – their own or someone else’s – will relate to. Plus showtunes! Pack your dancing shoes, your Theraband, your passport and your tissues.
