“In Homeric terms, Zinn has given birth to a story

that would make Penelope — one of the original stalwart women in world literature — very, very proud.”

— Telly Halkias, The Bennington Banner

LUCY’S WEDDING

Written and Directed by Randolyn Zinn

2019 BEST PLAY NOMINATION

BERKSHIRE THEATRE CRITICS ASSOCIATION

Audiences and critics love LUCY’S WEDDING!

ABOUT THE PLAY: Three generations of women in one family — and the groom and his brother — struggle for independence from the family matrix without sacrificing fealty. They are searching for their authentic selves within and without religion and sibling rivalries, are trying to shake off the wrong partners for the right reasons and think they need to choose between work and family. Hilarity, dreams, visions and decisions ensue.

“Zinn has an eye for movement and for pictures. Her direction brings things forward that another director might have missed.” — The Berkshire Edge

with Julia Valen, Colleen O’Connor, Michael Broadhurst, Sara Canter, Will Gallacher, Karen Trott, Kirk Jackson

Randolyn said: “Directing this play allowed for revisions I hadn’t considered while writing it. The rehearsal process inspired new ideas and a fruitful collaboration with the actors. We learned that in the juxtaposition between the characters’ dreams and waking life how to negotiate the hilarity of their misunderstandings with the pathos of their circumstances.”

"Under Randolyn Zinn's fine tuned direction, the five cast members do a beautiful job of balancing the twin foci of the alarming nature of the murderous plot and their increasingly farcical behavior."

From our audience:

"Spirited, adventurous, joyful and serious. Zinn and her entire team have done wonders. How we love them!" 

-- Willard Boepple

 

"This year's production of Exit The King was simply magical. The hallucinogenic scene-scape that Zinn and her team created will stay with us for a long time. Get thee to North Bennington! It is well worth the journey.
