At a bar across from a falafel place, Max and Anna meet again, or is it for the first time? A funny and emotionally raw portrait of a couple struggling to hold on to one another without losing themselves, Fish Eye explodes the traditional chronology of romance and offers a modern take on the exhilaration of love – when nothing means everything and everything means nothing – and the entire world can shrink down to a single moment.

Written by Lucas Kavner
Directed by Sam Goss
Advised by Tom Kremer

Feb. 27, 28, 29 and March 1 at 8 p.m. in Studio A Theater (FA 192)

$3 cash admission at the door.

Cast: Caroline Aruanno, Connor Brannigan, Amelia Pena, Gabriel Pinciotti

Attention students interested in directiong and/or choreography!

Due date for proposals for directing or choreographing in the Fall 2020 Studio Season TBA.

Proposals must include: Title of Play, Playwright, Casting Breakdown (including number of actors and numbers of men and women), royalty fees per show, whom to contact for the rights (including contact information), and cost of scripts (we must purchase scripts – no xeroxing).

Proposals must also include why you want to direct this play, its significance to you personally and to your development as a director, your concept for the production, any and all technical requirements (set, lighting, costume, sound, props, etc. - please include which items you will provide and which you hope to borrow from the department), potential casting and technical concerns, etc. Remember, you must be able to produce the show without any support from the Theatre Department's design/technical area, and must address how you will overcome potential challenges in your proposal.

In addition to the above, please have a second play ready to propose in case your first choice is not approved.

Proposals must also include the name and signature of your faculty advisor. You must secure an advisor willing to take you on as an advisee one month prior to the proposal due date.

Please keep in mind that the budget (including royalties and scripts) for an “In the Works” studio production is $300, and that choreography projects and original plays have smaller budgets.

In addition to obtaining faculty approval, "In the Works" directors must have successfully completed the Directing class and THEA 203/213, and "In the Works" choreographers must have have successfully completed the Choreography class and THEA 203/213 or its equivalent.

“In the Works” plays may be a 25-45 minute one act play, or may be one act of a full length play. “In the Works” productions have 3.5 weeks of rehearsal, and usually open Thursday or Friday of the fourth week of rehearsal.

The budget (including royalties and scripts) for directors who have already directed an “In the Works” production and are applying to direct a full-length Studio play is $450. A full length studio production has 5.5 weeks of rehearsal and usually opens the Thursday or Friday of the sixth week of rehearsal.

Any production that may be part of the Fall 2020 Studio Season must have a proposal submitted to Elizabeth Mozer, Director of the Studio Season, by date TBA.

If you have questions, please contact Elizabeth via email at emozer@binghamton.edu
