feature Michael Fox Kennedy, familiar to Apron Theater audiences for his performances in The Cripple of Inishmaan and Other Desert Cities. Christopher Coutant will direct. This is Mr. Kennedy’s second one-man show. He presented his own play assembled from the words of Abraham Lincoln at many venues around New England. Eno’s Title and Deed, in its 2012 New York production, was selected for the year’s “ten best plays” lists by both the New York Times and The New Yorker. The Times described it as “a haunting and often fiercely funny meditation on life as a state of permanent exile.”

 

 

 


apron: noun

  1. A protective covering worn while creating… a meal, a sculpture, a garden.
  2. The part of the stage closest to the audience.

Making theater is akin to preparing a lavish meal for friends – there is care and sustenance and a communal feeling of coming together… this spirit of sharing informs our aspirations and practices for the theater work we do at The Apron.
The Apron was born from this impulse to come together as a community through the making and sharing of story.
We are committed to exploring challenging theatre –
To cultivating a collaborative atmosphere and home where theater makers can explore new territory, take risks – and engage our neighbors/audience in lively theatrical events.

The Apron Theater proudly collaborates with The Next Stage Arts Project as theatre-in-residence. Our partnership with the generous and focused folks at Next Stage makes it possible to create a home, dialogue with audiences, and engage with the community.
The Apron Theater is co-directed by Karla Baldwin & Hallie Flower.
