Who’s back? Marie Rodell and the rest of Rachel Carson’s posse, that’s who!
I was lucky to be a part of a workshop of an earlier draft of this piece in the 2015 Fresh Fruit Festival, and I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to tell her story again- for THREE NIGHTS ONLY. Ticket information is below – it would be great to see you there!
About the Show
Written by brother-sister writing duo Jared and Jessie Field and directed by Ari Laura Kreith, Rachel is about the life of biologist Rachel Carson, author of “Silent Spring,” which sparked the modern environmental movement. Struggling to find her place in the world as a scientist and a woman, her skill as a writer eventually brings her success and critical acclaim. However, when the destructive nature of pesticides is brought to her attention, Carson jeopardizes her health, her success, and the deep relationship she shares with her neighbor Dorothy Freeman to take a stand for the earth.
The show takes place in dual timelines, with the brilliant Rebecca Muller and Erin Fish sharing the role of Rachel Carson in her younger and older years and Amie Bermowitz playing Dorothy (and a few other characters). I’ll be portraying four different women who inspired and were inspired by Rachel, while singing the alto line in the comfy basement – the pic above is what my face looks like when I hold a low F (!!!) for 8 measures. Join us!
