In a city by the river, society divides along the lines of imperfect DNA, trashy bestsellers and downloadable babies. Macy O. Blonsky, author of "the last print published novel ever," must decide how far she will go to bring her creation to the world. Playwright Ann Marie Healy's What Once We Felt is a science-fiction exploration of the schisms in society and technology. It's a story where eugenics, futuristic technology and the hunger to create art collide -- with an explosion surely not far behind. This New England premiere -- after productions in New York and Chicago -- features a talented, all-female cast. Learn More

February 17 - April 7, 2012: Immaterial Girl (Episode One)
Blood Rose Rising is a supernatural romantic thriller. It tells the story of Robert Blackwood, a young history professor living in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who inherits a tumbledown Victorian mansion from his estranged father, the brilliant and mysterious Ulysses Blackwood, member of a long line of scientific and medical luminaries. Robert finds that the house is haunted by the presence of a beautiful Victorian woman, Rose. His growing obsession with her leads him to discover that by spilling the blood of the living, he can temporarily restore her to life. He sets out down the dark road between good and evil, murder and salvation, life and death.
With cast members Calvin Braxton, Andrew Cromartie, Poornima Kirby, Aimee Rose Ranger, Casey Preston, Dakota Shepard, Victor Shopov and Robert St. Laurence and live music by local bands, notably indy sensation Alchemilla, Blood Rose Rising promises many evenings of vivid, high-powered entertainment.
Blood Rose Rising was created by Ben Evett, who has been an innovator on the Boston scene for over 20 years. A member of the A.R.T. Resident Acting Company from 1993-2003, Evett went on to found the Actors’ Shakespeare Project, and led its remarkable growth from a small start-up to a cornerstone of the Boston theatre scene from 2004-2009. The scripts for the series are co-written by Evett and Steve Barkhimer, who is himself a theatrical renaissance man. Well known as a brilliant actor, director and musician, Barkhimer is also a skilled playwright who studied under the tutelage of Derek Walcott at Boston University and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center’s John Cauble Award for Best Short Play of 2009.
The show is recommended for those ages 12 and older, as it contains some strong language, loud sound effects and music, and violence.
