The Hidden Twin: An American Romance   Leave a comment

An unorthodox book leads Talia, a young historian, to the shop of an eccentric antiquarian and his spinster sisters. Once inside she finds she cannot leave, and is drawn into a time-web of ritual re-enactments that rattle her conception of America’s beginnings. Spun from the writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne and the founding fathers, with evocative physicality and haunting folk melodies, The Hidden Twin is a striking theatrical double-take on early American history.

The show was performed at Pilgrim Church in Cleveland, The NACL Catskill Festival of New Theatre, and as a featured production at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, where The Hidden Twin was fittingly laid to rest in a final performance at Christ Church, September 9, 2001.

Created by Wishhounds core collaborators Raymond Bobgan (director), Tracy Broyles, Holly Holsinger, Brett Keyser, and Rebecca Spencer, with project artists Thom Bartscherer (dramaturg), Kristie Lang, and Mariah Sage Leeds.
