Mark your calendars… “Still Life with Iris,” a full-length family friendly show, will be performed in October by the talented actors of the award-winning E.O. Smith Drama Club, directed by Lenore Grunko.
“Still Life is Iris,” by Steven Dietz, is a fantastical adventure that centers on a young girl’s search for the simplest of things: home.
Iris lives with her mother in the land of Nocturno – a magical place in which workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day.
Also, in Nocturno, the Great Goods are determined to have the “best” of everything on their island – and therefore take Iris away from her home and bring her to Great Island to be their daughter.
To ease the pain of this separation, they remove her Past Coat, leaving her with no memory of her home or family.
