Ladies and Gentleman the Rehearsal Blog is back! Rehearsals are underway for Fault Line’s next project, From White Plains, conceived and directed by Michael Perlman and starring Aaron Rossini, Karl Gregory, Craig Wesley Divino, and Jimmy King.
What strikes me about From White Plains is that its message extends beyond the treatment of LGBT individuals in America. It speaks to all of us, without regard to sex, creed, or sexual orientation and asks us to examine our own lives and the way we’ve chosen to treat other people and how they have treated us. Our actions have consequences, and in a world dominated by social media the power to reach millions with our thoughts and opinions is literally in the palm of our hands. We can be held accountable for every word we type or tweet on the internet. Because our comments have such a broad reach, are we obligated to hold ourselves to a higher standard? Must we take broader responsibility for the presence we establish in cyberspace? I don’t have the answers, but I’m excited that this play asks these questions. From White Plains forces us to look at who we’ve been, who we are, who we want to be, and how we chose to express that to the world. I look forward to seeing you at the theatre.
