Ticket Information

David Nosko and Hannah Moss are the co-founders of the performance group Theatre of the People. Usually they come in together to talk about upcoming shows, but this time David came in solo while Hannah took care of their brand new baby, Heinrich Wilde.

Highlights From The Interview

‘Project P: The Property-Line Punch Out’ was actually inspired by an outdoor production that we saw of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s Aria da Capo,” David says. “We have a weakness for ‘two-fers,’ and paired it with A Sand Castle in the Sky, a play that I began in a class at Indiana University.”

Although Millay wrote Sand Castle in 1920, it has a distinctly modern feel. “In particular, the two comedia del arte characters are quite comical in their conversational non sequiturs…. It’s a funny story with deep ironies and then a grim turn which is totally dismissed by the lovers.”

On pairing Aria da Capo with A Sandcastle in the Sky, David says “the parallels and the differences will work together to enrich the experience for the audience.” Both plays will be performed by permanent members of Theater of the People.

George Walker
