ICTC GOES VIRTUAL FOR THE FIRST SHOW OF 2020-2021!
ICTC goes virtual for the first show of its 2020-2021 Season!
Sea Marks by Gardner McKay,
October 16 to November 1, 2020
The Irish Classical Theatre Company will kick off its 30th Anniversary Season with Sea Marks by Gardner McKay. This lyrical Irish love story, winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics' Circle Award (Best Play) and the Canadian National Regional Theatre Award, will be presented virtually. Tickets will be affordably priced at $15 - $25.
A professionally produced, fully staged performance will be filmed at ICTC's home, The Andrews Theatre, and will be available for online purchase October 16 to November 1, 2020. Under the leadership of Executive Artistic Director Kate LoConti Alcocer, this will be ICTC's first digital theatre performance.
Living on a remote island West of Galway, Colm, a lonely fisherman, woos a woman he's glimpsed but once. He courts her by mail, and after a year and a half, romance blossoms, and he arrives in Liverpool. Colm aches to find connection in the arms of Timothea in this strange place she calls home; yet he longs for the sounds of the sea and for the life he has left behind.
ICTC is proud to partner with Deaf Access Services, an affiliate of People Inc., to provide both American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreted and Open Captioning options for viewing. This is the first of such offerings in the Region. Patrons will have the ability to choose one of our three options:
- Without ASL Interpretation or Closed Captioning
- With Closed Captioning
- With ASL Interpretation and Closed Captioning
Sea Marks, directed by ICTC Associate Director Fortunato Pezzimenti, stars ICTC audience favorites Chris Kelly as Colm and Kristen Tripp Kelley as Timothea. Both are recipients of multiple ARTIE Awards and nominations in multiple categories for productions at ICTC and across Western New York. Notably, Chris and Kristen played opposite one another in ICTC's regional premiere of The Seedbed by ICTC Playwright in Residence Bryan Delaney and The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh, displaying dynamic on-stage chemistry.
ICTC is collaborating for this online production with award-winning, Buffalo-based Pan-American Film Division. Travis Carlson will serve as Project Lead and Megan Gonsalves as Project Coordinator.
Sea Marks by Gardner McKay will be available for online viewing Friday, October 16 through Sunday, November 1. Click here for production and ticket information.
“Sea Marks” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
What about the rest of ICTC’s 2020-2021 Season?
A return to live performance is ICTC's goal; but, the safety and comfort of our artists and patrons is our overriding concern. ICTC will strictly adhere to CDC timelines and guidelines for reopening. Plans for the rest of the 2020-2021 Season will be announced as soon as we are able to do so reliably, responsibly, and with confidence. Stay tuned!
