I will admit, I was skeptical when I first heard about Eleemosynary. I thought it would seem dated, maybe a little precious. But as I read and re-read the script, especially once I knew they cast and I could read it with the three amazing actors in mind, I have come to feel its impact. Eleemosynary is an amazing play for so many reasons - mostly knowing the potential for such beautiful physicality because of the cast. Three founding member of SATE are performing together for the first time in over two years - probably closer to three. I relish the familiarity. Such a homecoming, for many reasons.
In emails to one another, we have confessed our excitement and nervousness. Hopefully this blog will be a place we can share and process - not only for this production, but for all those to come.
I am so proud to be a member of this ensemble.
