WHAT SHE FOUND to Make World Premiere at Frigid New York Theatre Festival
Megan Bandelt has announced that the world premiere of her latest work, what she found, will be presented at the 12th Annual FRIGID Festival. The festival will take place February 14th through March 4th 2018 at The Kraine and UNDER St. Marks Theaters on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
what she found was developed as a part of Rising Sun Performance Company’s Residency program on Governors Island last fall, and tells the story of Fiona, a twenty-something recovering from a depressive episode. In the midst of blurring the worlds between fictional and factual, she dares to explore a frightening world that tests her ability to work through dissociation unharmed. what she found pays homage to Lewis Carroll‘s Through the Looking-Glass while seeking to delve into the scathing reality and implications of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, dissociation, and living with the stigma of seeking psychiatric treatment.
what she found will feature the talents of the local NYC Indie Theatre Scene featuring Helena Farhi (Fiona), Jacobella Luongo (B), and Brenden Gregory (A). The Creative Team of what she found includes NJ Agwuna (Director), Akia (Co-Producer), Conor Daniel Bartram (Tech Director), Gregory F. Jackson (Stage Manager), Ashleigh Herndon (Choreographer), and Christine Sullivan (Graphic Designer).
Using devised and immersive storytelling origins, what she found promises to lead the audience on a journey that is sometimes uncomfortable, but ultimately illuminating, leading us into a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
what she found plays the following schedule during the 2018 FRIGID Festival: Thursday, February 15th 7:10pm| Wednesday, February 21st 5:30pm|Thursday, February 22nd 8:50pm|Saturday, February 24th 10:30pm|Sunday, March 4th 5:10pm
