Divided Together: An Original Play

Divided Together: An Original Play

Friday, March 24 at 7:00PM

Epoch Arts is gearing up to showcase an original one act play called, Divided Together. The play is written and performed by the girls group, Breaking Silences. The girls have been working with the theme, Teamwork, this year and through journaling, teamwork games and outreach, they have incorporated their experiences into an original play. The play revolves around a time when the world is at war and nobody is safe. Because of this, the Mass Evacuation Annex Team has relocated a group of girls to an island for their own safety. Once on the island, the girls must learn to work together despite their differences. With issues such as diverse cultures, beliefs and wealth diving them, the girls must fight against judgment, inequality and prejudice. It is only when the thought of being rescued is known that the girls true colors come out.  Divided Together opens March 24th and 25th, 7:00pm. Tickets are $7 and reservations can be made at info@epocharts.org or by calling 860-365-0337. 27 Skinner Street, East Hampton. www.epocharts.org


Thanks for coming to Unfinished People-2017

The original play, Unfinished People, focused on issues of social and economic differences, it looked at what causes separation, what distracts us from community involvement and how we can educate ourselves on issues that we know nothing about. It talked about characters who lived in a perfect diverse society, but when they are pulled out of that society and forced to look at the real world,they are shocked at how broken the world really is. "The play tackled current social and economic issues, as well as addressed the drug problems in this world that others seem to ignore. It taught us that we need to be passionate and active members of our community, instead of being distracted by superficial things,” says actor Megan Crotty. The play asked the question of how we spend our time, what superficial things we fill it up with and should we be investing in people, rather than things. Sixteen year old cast member Robin Leet explained, “This isn't your average play. This show discusses important, sparsely spoken of issues, such as drugs, addiction and what it can do to a person, and the unhealthy things we consume ourselves with in daily life. We will speak of the vacancy in relationships and people caused by cell phones and other casual, everyday devices.We break down barriers you might not even know were there and bring attention to poverty, the middle to lower class, and how these issues can affect our community as a whole.”
