WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Collective presents True North: Dolores & Lila on the Wall, an evening of two one-acts written by Edward Allan Baker. Lila on the Wall presented with special permission from Edward Allan BakerDirected by Michele Chivu and Suzannah Quincy BeardPerformed by members of The Collective: Craig Butta, Victoria Dicce*, Brielle Silvestri and Melissa RindellLila on the Wall follows a reporter and her cameraman on one night during what may be the last, best report of her career, and possibly the most important night of her life. In Dolores, Sandra is home alone, enjoying her weekly break from her husband and kids, when her older sister Dolores shows up with a black eye, courtesy of the latest in her string of bad husbands. It becomes clear that Dolores is unwelcome, because she's an explicit reminder of the brutality Sandra tries to overlook in her own apparently comfortable life. A drama/comedy with the rough Rhode Island demeanor like The Sopranos and the irreverence of Laverne & Shirley. In the author's own words, it's "the story of two sisters drawn together because of domestic violence which influences the lives of both characters more than they've ever admitted."BIO OF EDWARD ALLAN BAKER:-32 plays to his credit, most notably, Dolores-on the playwriting faculty of The Actors Studio MFA Program, Pace University (current)-1 of 10 writers chosen to attend The Sundance Film Institutes writers conference (1991)- received numerous awards in film festivals for the short film Dolores (1989-1991)- was presented with "The 25th Anniversary Award for Theatrical Excellence" by ESTAn Equity approved showcase.*These Actors appear courtesy of Actors Equity Association.
