Yesterday we began work on our next production, a show about hermits, inspired by real events and written by nimbus co-Artistic Director Liz Neerland. Coming to The Crane Theater November 9, the production features a talented ensemble of alumni from various eras of the company's history (Delta Rae Giordano, Cate Jackson, Nicholas Nelson, Gregory Yang) and one newcomer (Brid Henry).

The production features a talented design team of nimbus regulars, including company member Brian Hesser as Scenic Designer, costume design duo Rubble&Ash, property design by Ursula K. Bowden, and lighting design by Emmet Kowler. nimbus co-Artistic director Josh Cragun will direct, and company member Alyssa Thompson will be the Stage Manager for the production.

Last night's production was the beginning of a week of Table Work, or research and brainstorming that will lead into our Script Work phase of co-creation, which starts next week. To learn more about our unique process for creating work, click here.
