Rooted in Russian theatre techniques, Arlekin Players Theatre is an award-winning (Elliot Norton Award-winning Best Production A Dead Man’s Diary), an artist-driven company with a commitment to telling powerful stories on stage that resonates with audiences from different cultures, locally and internationally.
Arlekin Players Theatre will remount German playwright Marius von Mayenburg’s The StoneSeptember 13 – 29 performed in English at their theater at Studio 368 in Needham. Directed by Arlekin Players Theatre’s Artistic Director Igor Golyak (Elliot Norton Award-winning A Dead Man’s Diary), the production was performed in Russian by the same cast in May and June.
In 1935, a young couple purchases a house from a Jewish family in Dresden, Germany. The play follows the lives of the house’s residents, who must grapple with their own identity while experiencing the reverberations created by 60 years of German history. As the house is passed from owner to owner, and generation to generation, the secrets buried in the garden and within the walls reveal themselves.
The Stone Production design team features David R. Gammons (scenographer), Nastya Bugaeva (costume design), Jeff Adelberg (light design), Jakov Jakoulov(original score), Vladimir Gusev (video designer) and an eight-member cast including Jenya Brodskaia (Conductor #1), Misha Tyutyunik (Conductor #2 ), Olga Sokolova (Hannah), Viktoriya Kovalenko (Heidrun), Darya Denisova (Witha), Rimma Gluzman (Mieze), Anna Kovalenko (Stefanie), and David Gamarnik (Wolfgang).
