DISAPPEARING ACT
a staged reading presented by Rabbit Hole Ensemble

May 18 and 19 (Friday and Saturday) at 7:00 pm
May 20 (Sunday) at 2pm

Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock

RABBIT HOLE ENSEMBLE is pleased to introduce itself to the Woodstock community with three staged readings of DISAPPEARING ACT written and directed by Artistic Director/NYIT Award winner Edward Elefterion. The production will be presented at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock on May 18 and 19 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, May 20 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10 (suggested donation).

DISAPPEARING ACT is a play about the cost of making art in a world of increasing indifference. Three actors rehearse a play about three artists at different points in their careers: Cindy, a budding playwright who is studying (and having an affair) with her professor Dale, who chose a career in academia over moving to New York and trying for an acting career, and Dale’s old flame Eleanor, who moved to New York all those years ago and has just won the Pulitzer for Drama — and is invited to speak at Dale’s college. While rehearsing the play, the three actors are forced to reassess their own careers, motives, goals, and definitions of success/failure.

Rabbit Hole Ensemble introduces its award-winning minimalist aesthetic to the Hudson Valley in this inaugural presentation. Mirroring the original production, which invited audiences into the actual Brooklyn rehearsal hall used to create the work, this new presentation will use the natural intimacy of the Kleinert/James gallery space. Following each performance, the audience will be invited to participate in an informal talk back with the artists.

Playwright and director EDWARD ELEFTERION is the Artistic Director of Rabbit Hole Ensemble, recipient of the 2008 New York Innovative Theatre (NYIT) Award for Outstanding Director, and nominee for the 2009 NYIT Award for Outstanding Choreography. His muscular, actor-centric brand of theatre has earned critical acclaim: the award-winning THE NIGHT OF NOSFERATU, CANDIDE AMERICANA (a production featured by PBS in their world literature series), SHADOW OF HIMSELF by NEAL BELL (called “captivating” by SHOWBUSINESS WEEKLY), and A ROPE IN THE ABYSS (featured in the DAILY NEWS). His writing credits include ALONE, BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES, A ROPE IN THE ABYSS, and THE SIBLINGS, all published by Indie Theater Now.

Featured in the cast: ARTHUR AULISI (Person of the Year 2008 by nytheatre.com), ELLA LOUDON (Shakespeare & Company’s “CYMBELINE” (2017) and “MACBETH” (June 2018), and TRACY SHAR (“ALONE” and “Songs I Sing When I’m Naked and Alone in New York” at The Duplex).

RABBIT HOLE ENSEMBLE, founded in 2005 in Brooklyn, is now a Woodstock-based theatre company that aims to unite audience and artists through a shared imaginative leap, one suggested by the artists and completed by the creative power of the audience. The company’s distinctly minimalist aesthetic has been recognized by THE NEW YORK TIMES; TIME OUT (“Four Stars—Critic’s Pick”); THE VILLAGE VOICE (“riveting…should not be missed”); NYTHEATRE.COM (“spectacular”); BROADWAY WORLD (“spine-tingling”); and TALKIN’ BROADWAY (“fully conceived and flawlessly executed”). The company has received two New York Innovative Theatre Awards, and seven nominations.

DISAPPEARING ACT. A staged reading written and directed by Edward Elefterion, featuring Arthur Aulisi, Ella Loudon, and Tracy Shar. May 18 and 19 (Friday and Saturday) at 7:00 pm, and May 20 (Sunday) at 2:00 pm at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts at 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock. Tickets are $10 (suggested donation at door).
