Stitching

Stitching is a collaboration between composer and GW Resident Artist & Scholar, Sarah O’Halloran, and playwright, Colin Stanley Bell. It tells the story of Lana, a teenager, who has lived with her grandmother since her mother’s death. Isolated from their community, Lana and Nana share a highly imaginative world full of fantastic stories that protect them from harsh realities. Recently, Nana has become frail and her memory is failing, so Lana cares for her. Fearing being separated by the authorities, they have kept Nana’s problems secret, but people are starting to notice. Lana resolves to find Nana’s memories and keep them safe. This quest takes Lana on an interplanetary adventure through time and space. O’Halloran will be presenting Stitching in preview form for these April performances.
