PRODUCTION DETAILS

A story about love, loss and what remains when our words are gone.  In a society where rational thinkers are heroes and those who don’t fit are forgotten, Andrea and Leo are two strangers brought together under extraordinary circumstances. After witnessing an unspeakable act of violence, Leo’s mind goes blank and the two are forced run. Hiding in an abandon school house, they dive into memories together, but in attempting to save each other they risk destroying themselves.

RETURNING TO ALBERT JOSEPH was first workshopped by members of the Satori Group in the fall of 2010. It received a staged reading as part Satori's PLAY: a festival of plays in 2013. The show was first produced by the company in Seattle in 2014. It was revised and reimagined for a subsequent production in Williamstown in the fall of 2015.
