Food & Shelter is a new play by Sean Hurley and it is one of the most inspiring projects I’ve ever been a part of.
From the press release:
“I feel as if Arthur Miller came over to my house and asked me if I’d want to direct the world premiere of Death of a Salesman,” says Food & Shelter director, David Stern. “This is perhaps the most exciting creative opportunity I have had in the theater since I began working 35 years ago. Sean’s play is hauntingly beautiful, full of pathos and pain. It both affirms our beautiful, brief existence and grapples with the challenges that we face in trying to connect with each other.”
Food & Shelter begins with two strangers, who happen to be newlyweds, Bronwyn and Estevez, moving into a cabin in the snowy woods. Empty at first, the cabin actually contains everything they need – if only they can find it. But there’s a price for the life-saving provisions: someone, or something, is determined to never let them leave. As the cabin reveals its secrets, Bronwyn and Estevez begin to confess their own. And though Estevez may be falling in love with Bronwyn, love is the last thing on her mind.
