Spotlight



Theatre B productions have been remarkable in the sustained high quality of their work: the choice of plays, the abilities of the actors, the stage craft. The group makes a wonderful contribution to the Fargo-Moorhead area, and I look forward to its future.

Wit

Wit-600x200

We are excited to open our 2014-2015 season with the Pulitzer Prize winning Wit by Margaret Edson, in collaboration with the Embrace Cancer Survivorship Program. Featuring Theatre B Ensemble Member Carrie Wintersteen and with Charles Newman, Matthew Collie, Meg Bartholomay, Mary Cochran, Mike Sunram, Caitlin O’Connell, and Stacey Schulte

carrie no hair Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the intricate, difficult Holy Sonnets of John Donne, is diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. Confident of her ability to stay in control of events, she brings to her illness the same intensely rational and painstakingly methodical approach that has guided her stellar academic career. But as her disease and her stint as a prize patient in an experimental chemotherapy program inexorably progress, Vivian comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity, humor, and wit that are transformative.

This past Friday, we were honored to present Wit at Sanford's Broadway Hospital for doctors, medical residents, nurses, and nursing students. The performances were followed by a workshop about the themes of empathy in the play.

"It's kind of like a mirror of what we have in our own lives but might be afraid to talk about. And then you see it there, on stage, in front of you. It really can change your life."

There have been a lot of entertaining, provocative, and powerful productions that Theatre B has produced or been a part of. We invited a few fans to talk about one that impacted them. You can view the video below or on YouTube.
