Premiere of Castle on the Hill, April 27
Faculty member Elizabeth Mozer is debuting her original production of Castle on the Hill at 8 p.m. Friday, April 27, in Watters Theater. Castle on the Hill is the culmination of Mozer's years of research on life at the former Binghamton State Hospital — achieved through multiple visits to said castle, and former asylum residents, as well as interviews with the residents' families and the castle's staff. Mozer created, conceived and performed the precursor of this production, her one-woman show The Asylum Project, on select college campuses as well as professional theaters around New York. Castle on the Hill adds more stories to those of people who went to this historic landmark to heal, to help others heal or just to find their way in this place that has sparked the curiosity of all who encounter its spirit.
