Somewhere in Between
Written by Ryan Sprague

Following the death of their mother, two estranged brothers reunite with a plan to move forward. But when a secret from the past emerges, their inability to assess reality provides a glimpse of what may truly be hell on Earth. Somewhere in Between was developed as part of Collaborative Stages' Scene & Heard Reading Series and received a reading in May 2009.
"Ryan has written this beautiful play and we are beyond ecstatic that he has entrusted us with its first production," says director Brian Letchworth. "Throughout the last year of development and rewrites we have continued to marvel at this very special and powerful text. It's a wonderful challenge for our company."
Somewhere in Between features an impressive cast of Off-Off Broadway and regional theatre actors: Erik Gullberg as Greg, Jeffrey A. Wisniewski as Joshua and Ariel Woodiwiss as Lissa.

Founded by Sarah Jane Arnegger (Executive Director) and Brian Letchworth (Artistic Director), Collaborative Stages is dedicated to providing a creative home for performing artists of all disciplines, mediums, and genres. Producing revivals and original works, Collaborative Stages challenges artistic boundaries, while fostering and promoting innovative theatre. Our company is committed to the work of the Ensemble and the advancement of the collaborative arts. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of small, fledgling theatre companies with a wide variety of goals and missions. We could spend hours and days, weeks and months pondering over how to be unique, how to stand out, but rather we've chosen to go with our gut instincts and let this organization develop into something on its own. There are far too many limitations in this world - why should we begin with an agenda that's too rigid and defined?
The essence of Collaborative Stages is that we are seeking new and innovative ways to encourage and promote collaboration. Theatre is a team sport. It is collaboration. We strive to create an organization that ultimately highlights, encourages and fosters that sort of work and that seeks new and pioneering ways to create compelling, interesting, dynamic theatre. Our emphasis in on the theatre itself: The people involved and the work they do - they are our focus.
