Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on March 15th, 2021

Well, IDSers, this episode serves as our St. Patrick’s Day Special and it’s an extra long episode so you will need plenty of green things to eat and drink as you listen to it.

IDS 660 Dog Act at The Seeing Place Theater

Posted in Episodes on February 1st, 2021

This week I’m joined via Zoom by Erin Cronican, and William Ketter to discuss The Seeing Place Theater’s production of Dog Act by Liz Duffy Adams. It is a live Zoom performance on February 03, 2021. We discuss the script and the ways to produce a live production through the lens of a Zoom world. Enjoy!!

Deep Fried Theatre:

THE SEEING PLACE THEATER (TSP) is celebrating its 10++ Season despite being forced online due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, The Body Politic.  As their 10th Season continues through 2021, they will be presenting their productions written by distinguished playwrights virtually, with the hope of returning to the Paradise Factory (64 E 4th Street, NY NY 10003) as soon as they are able. Up next is a lively online production of DOG ACT by Liz Duffy Adams. DOG ACT, directed by Erin Cronican will air January 30 at 7:00 pm EST and February3, 2021 at 7:00 pm EST.

 Liz Duffy Adams irreverent post-apocalyptic play DOG ACT

The play follows the adventures of Zetta Stone, a traveling performer, and her companion Dog (a young man undergoing a “voluntary species demotion”) as they wander through the former northeastern United States. Zetta, Dog, and their little troupe are on their way to a gig in China, assuming they can find it…and survive the journey. DOG ACT is a theatrical, darkly comic variation on the classic doomsday genre, with five original songs.

The productions star members of their illustrious ensemble comprised of actors from the BIPOC, disabled, LGTBQIA, and immigrant communities, and 75% are women or non-binary. They are TSP veterans Erin Cronican, Robin Friend, William Ketter, Jon L Peacock, Hailey Vest, Brandon Walker (who appeared in one of the first ever productions of the play in 2005), and Weronika Helena Wozniak.

The production features scenic and costume design by Erin Cronican. Brandon Walker is the sound designer and composer, and Shannon Formas is the stage manager. Publicity by Katie Rosin/Kampfire PR.

“It seems all-too appropriate to be presenting a play about post-apocalyptic adventures, given our current health and political upheaval that we’re experiencing in the United States,” says director Erin Cronican. “This play asks us to reflect on how we manage our pain and loss, how we forge alliances in times of strife, and the importance of storytelling to bring us all together.”

DOG ACT will be performed LIVE via Zoom: 

Wednesday February 3th at 7:00 pm EST/4:00 pm PDT

Tickets are $10-$50 and are now available online at www.TheSeeingPlace.com or by calling (866) 811-4111.

Running Time: 2 hours

Website: www.seeingplacetheater.com

Social Media: @TheSeeingPlace

Seeing Play Theater is a proud member of ART-NY, NYIT Award Nominee, AEA Showcase Code/Theater Authority

This Episode’s Guests are:

Erin Cronican, Co-Founder, Executive Artistic Director, Director of Dog Act, and as Rozetta (Zetta) Stone.
Wiliam Ketter, actor, as Dog.

This performance is a part of The Seeing Place’s RIPPLE FOR CHANGE Series, a program that celebrates non-profit organizations who are making immense contributions to their communities in the area of social justice. This month’s honoree – St Clement’s NYC: A congregation that has always celebrated the ministry of women, of gay and lesbian people, and those of all walks of life; a longtime center of service to the poor, celebrating social activism and creative liturgy – one of the most diverse Episcopal parishes in New York City. St Clements has operated a food pantry since 1986, one of its primary means of outreach. www.stclementsnyc.org  

To further the play’s impact, The Seeing Place will follow the live play with a talkback discussion “Action Steps for Surviving Hardship in an Uncertain World” with panelists from the storytelling and health communities.
