Fall Forward Festival
Friday, October 1, 2021
During the pandemic shutdown, the Vineyard commissioned five daring artists to create new works of alternative theatre. Over the year, these projects -- as varied as the artists creating them -- were seeded and grew, and now, we can’t wait to share them with you. Vineyard Theatre’s FALL FORWARD FESTIVAL will feature a mix of live-in person, live virtual, filmed, and audio performances, some fully realized and some in process. Join us to experience five different ways artists are leaping into the future.
The FALL FORWARD FESTIVAL includes Kirsten Childs’ Aunt Lillian, a wickedly funny audio musical about a battle of wills between two young girls and their no-nonsense aunt, directed by Awoye Timpo (audio musical); Ngozi Anyanwu's Maybe Dorothy Was Right, a short film and love letter to New York and the theatre, directed by Alfonso Johnson (short film); Jared Mezzocchi 's On the Beauty of Loss (live/virtual), an introspective multimedia performance exploring the emergence of social technology and its impact on memory and grief; Polly Pen's 56 Flowers, a chamber musical about a receptionist who finds herself drawn to the story of the 19th century composer Carrie Jacobs-Bond (live reading in person); and Madeline Sayet's The Fish, a new full-length play following two Mohegan-Jewish siblings on a search to find out what their ancestors never meant for them to know (live reading in person)
