World premiere at Next Stage

PUTNEY - The Wild Goose Players will present the world premiere of “Food & Shelter” by award-winning playwright Sean Hurley at Next Stage Arts, 15 Kimball Hill, from Friday, January 21, to Sunday, January 30, at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $35 advance and $40 at the door. They are available at or by calling (802) 387-0102.
“Food & Shelter” begins with two strangers, Bronwyn and Estevez, moving into a cabin in the snowy woods. Empty at first, the cabin actually contains everything they need, if only they can find it. But there’s a price for the life-saving provisions:  someone, or something, is determined to never let them leave. As the cabin reveals its secrets, Bronwyn and Estevez begin to confess their own. And though Estevez may be falling in love with Bronwyn, love is the last thing on her mind. Darkly hilarious and heartbreaking by turns, the story culminates in a moment of unforgettable stage work.
Written at the outset of the pandemic and safely rehearsed throughout, the Next Stage production will be directed by David Stern. Original music for this production has been composed by Greg Wilder. Costume design is by Sandy Klein; choreography is by Neva Cockrell and Raphael Sacks, of Loom Ensemble; and “the Cabin Painting,” which plays a significant role in “Food & Shelter,” was painted by Liz Guzynski. Eliza Klein plays Bronwyn and Colin Hinckley plays Estevez.
