Chekhovian theatre production promises journey of possibilities

A low-tech stage production this weekend in the CAW Student Centre will employ dramatic techniques taught by UWindsor professor Lionel Walsh.

Walsh trains actors and instructors in the fantastic realism style of theatre practitioner Michael Chekhov in his classes at the School of Dramatic Art and through an Ohio-based consortium. Two grads of that program, Bevin Bell-Hall and Tim Welsh, founded the Name of Bird ensemble, which will present Constellations by Nick Payne on Sunday, October 22.

The story of Marianne and Roland — two people drawn irresistibly together by time and space — the play will send audiences on a journey of infinite possibilities, love, loss, and laughter.

The figurative curtain will rise at 3 p.m. in the Ambassador Auditorium. Admission is on a pay-what-you-can basis.
