ECHOES

by Henry Naylor

directed by Brendan Ragan

Regional Premiere
 

November 17 - December 17, 2017

Tillie and Samira were born 175 years apart, but their parallel stories eerily mirror one another across generations. Tillie is a Victorian pioneer woman sent to Afghanistan to fulfill wifely duties for an officer of the British Raj, while Samira is a Muslim schoolgirl who runs away to Syria to become the jihadi bride of an ISIS fighter. Both are confronted with tragedy in war-torn lands as they face the oppressive realities of their male-dominated landscapes.

 

Approximately 70 minutes, no intermission.

"An increasingly gripping series of brief and intersecting monologues...Echoes continues Urbanite’s strength at staging plays that engage and provoke audiences."

-Sarasota Herald-Tribune (Full Review)

"The searing tension builds in a tortuous manner, slow and sustained until it ultimately explodes in a violent crescendo. Echoes is equally introspective and riveting."

-Bradenton Times (Full Review)

"It can still surprise even a regular theatergoer how seemingly simple it can be to relate an affecting story onstage, with just one or two characters, a bare minimum of props, movement or visuals. That’s the case with Urbanite's high-impact production of Echoes."

-Sarasota Magazine (Full Review)

"The mission of Urbanite Theatre is provocative theater, and with this play they have one of their strongest productions ever."

-Talkin' Broadway (Full Review)
