Department Story

April 7th – April 9th, 7pm

During the Covid lockdown in the Spring of 2020, Alfred University Theatre faculty Eliza Beckwith and Maureen Weiss watched an online production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, by the Big Telly Theatre Company in Northern Ireland. (https://big-telly.com/) They were so impressed that they contacted Artistic Director, Zoe Seaton, and this began a journey of collaboration between Alfred University and the company. Alfred students have watched many of their productions, have done online stage management and acting workshops, and are now adapting one of their latest interactive site-specific theatre pieces Department Story (performed at the Belfast International Arts Festival in the fall of 2021) for a production in Hornell, NY. Big Telly Associate Artist, actor Chris Robinson will be performing with the AU students live from Northern Ireland. Through the wonderful generosity of A.G.
