The Play

A New England Premiere by Jackie Sibblies Drury
Directed by Shawn LaCount
In Partnership with Matter & Light Fine Art in SOWA
January 20 – February 12, 2017

In a studio filled with photographs, two very different women work to process the disappearance of a charming, volatile artist. But which of them really knew him? Staged in SOWA’s intimate Matter & Light gallery, this striking, lyrical new work follows the people he left behind as they sort through his remaining photos—which offer confounding clues into to the person they both loved. Through sound and silence, flash and shutter, REALLY explores the elusive way in which photography freezes a moment in time, and what effect that image has on memory.
