A NEW WORK BY DOUG VARONE (world premiere)
Inspired by the complex, haunting imagery of Billy Collins’s poetry, everything is fine unfolds in eight interwoven narratives mapping an array of themes: love, solitude, separation, forgiveness, aging. Performed by a multi-generational cast of 20 artists, it delves deep into our memories, creating intimate portraits of ordinary lives.
Envisioned as a series of cinematic dialogues, it is performed to a newly commissioned score by renowned composer David Van Tieghem. Lighting Design by Ben Stanton. Costume Design by Liz Prince. Dramaturg: Nancy Bannon.
TW: Includes short scene of sexually assault, not suitable for young children.
