Riverside Drive, directed by Marc de Fontnouvelle
This year’s student production, Woody Allen’s Riverside Drive, drew a crowd to the Smith Theater stage on Saturday, 27 January.
Directed by Class I’s Marc de Fontnouvelle, the one-act comedy pits the two halves of a writer’s psyche against each other. Jim, a successful but bland young writer, is waiting for his mistress when Fred, a creative genius who has gone insane, engages him in an absurd conversation. Jim reveals that he is intending to end his affair, but is blackmailed by his mistress when he tries to do so. He and Fred then engage in a battle of wits and morals as they struggle to solve the issue.
The cast of four included seniors Reis White, Quinn Ebben, Jack Golden, and Katie Tsai (a junior from Winsor). Senior Andrew Gray was director of tech and set.
Upperclassmen were invited to a catered dinner in the Refectory prior to the show.See photos of the production here.
