A staged reading of David Hare’s Berlin/Wall, produced by Upstream Theater and directed by Bonnie Taylor, Ph.D. and member AEA will be performed on Sunday, January 17, 2:00 p.m. No admission fee.
The staging will be held at the Rialto Ballroom at the Centene Center for Arts & Education, 3547 Olive (1/2 block east of Grand). Reception following.
Christopher Limber, member Actors’ Equity and Education Director for Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, will read Berlin, and Joan Lipkin, playwright and Artistic Director of That Uppity Theatre Company and the DisAbility Project, will read Wall. Composers and musicians Dan and Ted Rubright of the Wire Pilots will provide live music.
In two short monologues, David Hare shares his musings on famous modern walls: one missing in Berlin and another dividing Israel. Observing the mindsets, attitudes, and values of local residents, Hare reports, questions, and discovers the impact of walls -absent and present- and wonders about the future of freedom. (Berlin/Wall is a sequel to Hare’s 1999 play, Via Dolorosa that was staged by the New Jewish Theatre in 2007.)
Playwright David Hare
The playwright, David Hare, was born in Sussex in 1947 and is one of Britain’s most internationally performed playwrights. He has written more than twenty stage plays, among them Plenty, The Secret Rapture, Racing Demon, The Absence of War, Skylight, The Permanent Way, and Stuff Happens. Hare also directs and writes screenplays. Screenplays include The Hours and The Reader.
Adhering to its mission of bringing international work to St. Louis theater and of “moving audiences to think,” Upstream Theater believes British playwright David Hare’s play is timely as the world commemorates the twenty-year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, November 9, 2009, and anticipates the completion of the Israeli Security Fence in late 2010.
