The Long Now
by Beth Burns
Tish Reilly has a very special friend – Time. Tish can go back to any place where a good memory remains and enter it, reliving the moments that please her. When she reunites with the oft-remembered Larry, her first love, she finds a reason to finally begin to push forward in her life again. But will Time, who has grown so fond of her, be willing to let her go?
The Long Now is written and directed by Beth Burns (The Groundlings Theatre LA, NEA award-winning playwright) and considers the unpredictable nature of Time, and the impossible search for capturing the present. Composer/musician Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory, G.Z.R., Ascension of the Watchers) has created original music, and renowned puppeteer Jesse Kingsely (Henson Co.) has designed shadowed sets and an ingenious new method of shadow puppeteering to represent Time.
