Unique Productions (UP!), in collaboration with Ujima Theatre Co., announces the Western New York premiere of "The Process." It is a play that is part whimsical, part reality, and shows how a small group of writers, some with disabilities, come to process a full-length play, and how writing stories reveals what they wish would happen.
"The Process" opens Thursday, Nov. 13, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 23. Individual tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at www.facebook.com/productionsunique/app_208195102528120 or via email at [email protected].
Written by Aimee Levesque, Keller Vogelsang, Robert Bach, Wanda Wilson and Maria Laurendi, and directed by Beth Geyer, "The Process" attempts to address the following questions: Is a spoon better than a fork? Can a person using a wheelchair be a dancer? Can a play about overcoming the odds with unexpected twists and turns teach us lifelong lessons? Can a lovable teddy bear offer up imagination? The show aims to provide some answers.
Pre-purchased tickets and reservations are recommended. For more information, visit http://uniqueproductionsup.com.
