What happens when you bring together some of the shore's most passionate actors and four stars from Guiding Light? One of the most riveting rehearsals one could imagine. Emotions and words filled the space as Patience, portrayed by Guiding Light's and Lost's Cynthia Watros, interacted with her mother Grace, Tina Sloan from Guiding Light, and new lover John...or is it Jack, played by Grant Aleksander from Guiding Light fame. Watching these actors along with an "adorable" Lucy, portrayed by Meredith Taylor and Breathing Under Dirt writer Michael O'Leary, another Guiding Light alumnus, transported us to the oppressive 1950s South and allowed us to share in the heartache that comes with unforgiveness. Filled with fast paced dialogue and a dark of dark humor, Breathing Under Dirt will enthrall audiences this weekend. It's no wonder is it winner of the Manhattan Repertory Theatre competition held earlier this year.
When asked what to expect from Breathing Under Dirt, O’Leary writes, “We bear witness with a mother and daughter as they grapple with their deep resentments toward each other. The ultimate message and hope of 'Breathing Under Dirt' is that we can reach reconciliation and forgiveness with loved ones while we still have life.”
Join us on Saturday and Sunday, August 13 and 14 as Lower Shore Performing Arts Company presents the world premiere of Breathing Under Dirt at the Ella Fitzgerald Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
