Event Description

Relative Theatrics kicks off their 8th Season: A NEW WAY FORWARD with a hybrid theatre/film production of AND THE WIND HOWLS by Leann Kim Torske, September 4th-20th, 2020, virtually. The development team for this contemporary Wyoming play includes Anne Mason, Jared Mohr-Leiva, Lea Bergman, and Kat Tyler. This World Premiere is commissioned by Relative Theatrics and The Wyoming Arts Council.

Description: Jen (Kat Tyler) returns to her small Wyoming hometown after an eye-opening first year of college. She wants a different life than her family had, but she’s decided that Wyoming might not be so bad after all. Her best friend Amber (Lea Bergman) can’t wait to leave. The one thing they agree on is that their small town has never felt so small. Inspired by Wyoming’s history of trailblazing women, Jen buckles down to create social progress, change local politics, or if nothing else, show her mom (Anne Mason) that a rough-talking, hard-working Wyoming woman can shift the way the wind is blowing.

AND THE WIND HOWLS is filmed using a point-of-view shot where the audience experiences the story through one perspective at a time. Point of view shots are a creative form of filming to maintain the visual intimacy for the audience that they would otherwise experience when viewing a live Relative Theatrics performance in the Gryphon Theatre. Individual Tickets and Season Passes can be purchased online at: Relativetheatrics.com/annual-campaign

Relative Theatrics strives to present thought-provoking theatre that examines the joining qualities of the human race. We believe that theatre is a forum with the power to illuminate the binding qualities of humanity and reinforce the ideals that as a society we have values that pose as common ground and emotions that relate us to one another. Taking artistic risk, we provide a community gathering place where thoughts can be exchanged about society, culture, and the power of creativity.

Discussions of the performance will include a chat-back with the actors, director, and playwright via Zoom at times to be determined, including September 13 at 4pm. The play contains adult themes and language. Tickets: $15 *SUBSCRIBERS AND TICKET PURCHASERS WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH A PRIVATE VIEWING LINK FOR AT-HOME STREAMING. The link can be used anytime from September 4-20.

AND THE WIND HOWLS is supported in part by grants from the Wyoming Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, Wyoming Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
