WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Ledge is based upon the O. Henry Prize-winning short story written by Lawrence Sargent Hall. A fisherman is stranded with his son and nephew on a small reef exposed at low tide off the New England coast in winter. The following morning the fisherman's drowned body is dragged on to a wharf for his wife to see. From his frozen, post-corporeal being he is compelled by her eyes to relive his last hours holding the boys above the icy waters, to relive his last seconds of breath as the tide rises around his neck, to witness again his son swimming into darkness. The Ledge utilizes video projection as the sole source of stage lighting. The video not only illuminates the actor but also casts the stage décor and forms metaphorical undertones of the dramatic narrative. Box Office Hours: 6 PM to 8 PM Children under the age of twelve should be accompanied by a parent.
