"Journey in Light and Shadow" by Danish dramatist Stig Dalager is a play-within- a-play for three actors. Are they rehearsing, are they performing or are they not actors at all? Is it the present, the past, or in the future? The piece is something of an examination of playwriting process, with echoes of Strindberg and Pirandello. It is adapted by Natalie Menna from the Danish translation by Robert Greer and directed by Mr. Greer.

Marty's Shadow

Stig Dagerman, the acclaimed Swedish playwright, poet, novelist and journalist, was on assignment in Paris following the liberation and fall of the Third Reich. His play, "Marty's Shadow" is a Hitchcockian tale of a scarred family of the French resistance and is inspired by the real life story of Austrian Jewish refugee, Etta Federn. It is translated and produced by Nancy Pick with Lo Dagerman and directed by Whitney Gail Aronson.
