Today marked the release of GFA Theatre's virtual fall play Diana of Dobson's. The release comes as the program's first-ever Zoom play, having presented Romeo & Juliet as an audiobook this past spring.
Diana of Dobson's tells the story of a shop assistant who briefly escapes a life of drudgery when she inherits money from a distant relative and embarks on the holiday of a lifetime. The play, first performed in 1908, was written by Cicely Hamilton, a well-known Suffragist, and essayist, as well as a playwright and actor.
Its 13-person acting company, technical staff, Assistant Director, Production Stage Manager, and background artists join Director Stephen Stout in what he refers to as a "grand experiment." The production features waist-up costuming, prop passing, and painterly backgrounds created by GFA students Nancy Duer and Joanne Park.
