Now Playing: A DELICATE SHIP
By Anna Ziegler
Directed by Andre Barron
A haunting love triangle triggers an unexpected chain of events in this poetic play.
In the early stages of a new relationship, Sarah and Sam are lovers happily discovering
each other. But when Nate, Sarah’s best friend since childhood, shows up unannounced
on Sarah’s doorstep, she’s left questioning what and who she wants in this humorous
and heartbreaking look at love, memory, and the decisions that alter life’s course.

Now Playing: The Lighthouse
Three conversations taking place in the same bar on the same night. Six characters finding what they need: the first a conversation about regret that might not have happened, the second a conversation about resentment that had to happen, and the third a conversation about longing, that will never happen. Two actors, six characters, one lonely bar in the East Village on a rainy night.
The Lighthouse is written by Elizabeth Sampson and is comprised of three one-acts, Irish Coffee, Rocky Shoals and It Was the Lark. All three were first seen in past Summer Playwrights Festivals (SPF 3,4,7) and inaugurate the Road’s Pathways Series which brings festival plays to a workshop production.

A Delicate Ship Cast Interview
What character are you playing and how does he (she) contribute to the play?
I play Sarah in A Delicate Ship. It’s Sarah’s re-living of a night in her life that aches for resolution, really. It’s a puzzle about the choices we make for ourselves and accountability for its outcome. There’s a lot of reverence she carries for love, and also an extreme desire to get it right. And it proves to be difficult in very specific ways.
Are there challenges for you as an actor in interpreting/preparing for your role? If so, what are they?
Well, always, right?… I think a tricky part about Sarah is being honest about her loves and fears, and how they exist together. Also, the value your past and your future carry. Love and fear exist together for her. As an actor, it’s been both curious and challenging to work through the many opposites that exist in her. It’s a tricky play, with so much nuance.
