BOSTON, MA - In conjunction with their 2019-2020 season, Emerson Stage members recently performed a production of 10 out of 12 from November 21-24 at Emerson College's Semel Theatre in Boston, MA.
10 out of 12, written by Anne Washburn, developed through notes she took during technical rehearsals over the years. A company of 14 is engaged in the very peculiar-and peculiarly impossible-task of making a new play. Audiences have a seat next to the sound designer as he mixes cues, eavesdropping on backstage gossip as it happens over headset, watching the director struggle to contain the uncontainable. Directed by Maureen Shea, the show provides a wry and absorbing look at how work forms us and deforms us.
Among those involved was Dan Reilly of Mashpee, MA. Reilly, who is pursuing a degree in Theatre Education and Performance, is a member of the Emerson College Class of 2021 and was credited as: Actor.
At Emerson Stage, students in the Department of Performing Arts apply skills learned in the classroom to fully produced performances. The next generation of actors, designers, stage managers, technicians, administrators, and educators work alongside distinguished faculty, professional staff, and visiting artists to perfect their skills, build their resumes, and deepen their understanding of their craft and the role theater plays in enriching communities.
