Akvavit Theatre Presents: "Nothing of Me" by Arne Lygre
Arne Lygres new play NOTHING OF ME is a post-modern ghost story. Not long after an unspeakable tragedy, a wife and mother walks away from her entire life for a new relationship with a much younger man. Is she moving on towards a bright new life, or is she sinking deeper into self-destruction? In a playful yet haunting style, Lygre delves into the bond of love, its force and its dead-ends, using ruthlessly telltale dialogue. The play warns us of the danger we are all guilty of when we imprison others within our expectations, through the very love we feel for them.
NOTHING OF ME features company members Bergen Anderson* and Kirstin Franklin* with Paul S. Holmquist and Dan Wilson.
Co-directed by company members Chad Eric Bergman* and Breahan Eve Pautsch*
The production team for NOTHING OF ME includes: Chad Eric Bergman (set design), Christina Marcantonio (costume design), Emma Deane (lighting design), Nigel Harsch (sound designer), Derik Iverson (production manager) and Catherine Connelly (stage manager).
