Solas Nua is starting to present live theatre again! Our first in-person production for over a year, In the Middle of the Fields, written by Deirdre Kinahan (Wild Sky, The Frederick Douglass Project), centers on Eithne, who is undergoing chemo-therapy for breast cancer. Stepping out of her house and into the nearby fields, she wonders what her life will be like on the other side of recovery from a deadly disease.
“All I know is that I cannot waste. I will not waste a second chance.”
Directed by Laley Lippard (The Smuggler)
Starring: Jessica Lefkow, Caroline Dubberly, and Ryan Sellers
Sound Design by Gordon Nimmo-Smith and Tosin Olufolabi, Lighting Design by Marianne Meadows, Choreography by Tony Thomas, Audience Engagement by Philippa Hughes.
The show will be staged outdoors with audiences seated socially distant from each other. Situated in the beautiful federal park, P St Beach in Dupont Circle, the play will welcome audiences to safely enjoy live theatre underneath the summer stars.
Tickets are free with a Solas Nua Summer Theatre Membership!
Nationally recognized Creative Strategist Philippa Hughes will provide audience engagement events throughout the production in conjunction with Nueva Vida. Solas Nua will be raising awareness and fundraising for this organization during the run of the show. Nueva Vida is the only organization in the DC area that provides a comprehensive support network for the under-served Latino population affected by breast cancer.
