THE SANTALAND DIARIES and SEASON'S GREETINGS
 
November 15 - December 16, 2017

1300 Altamont Avenue, Richmond, Virginia 23230

Directed by T. Ross Aitken

Starring Robert Throckmorton and Jacqueline Jones
 
"Perfect is Director T. Ross Aitken's choice of actors ... Throckmorton and Jones are masterful in their use of inflection, timing and facial expressions. Each brings a sense of realness to the character that sometimes flirts with the darkest parts of our minds. Their portrayals are flawless, unlike their characters."

 "Impeccably performed by Jones, Jocelyn’s catty asides and increasingly unbelievable holiday cheer are comic gold ... the lanky Throckmorton, able to communicate a boatload of attitude with just a glance, effortlessly throws off punch line after punch line. Mostly director T. Ross Aitken keeps things simple. He lets his two talented performers run, and armed with Sedaris’ finely crafted hilarity, they provide a whole holiday season’s share of merriment in a single night of theater."

“There is one thing I know without question. The race of Man has created a fearsome and greedy beast called Progress, and it relishes every crushing stride with reckless abandon. I have seen what remains broken and lifeless in its wake, and I have tried to stop it. I have seen ... And I have felt an outrage that carries my sense of reason almost to the limit.”

~ Gene Stratton-Porter from A SONG IN THE WILDERNESS, by Larry Gard 

 

This compelling 45 minute one-woman show examines the life and experiences of this incredible woman who recognized the importance of conserving the earth’s environment. Viewers will depart the theatre with an understanding of just how strong the commitment must be to achieve both a reasonable and responsible balance between the preservation of natural resources and the industrial pursuits of mankind.  

 

Gene Stratton-Porter (1863-1924) was a prolific author of both fiction and non-fiction, a naturalist, an environmentalist, musician, and a nature  photographer. She was the first American author to be translated into a foreign language. At the height of her writing career,  she was selling 5,000 books per day, and it is estimated that during her lifetime, she had 50 million readers around the world. She used her wealth  and position to finance her studies of nature, her accomplishments as a photographer of birds and moths, and her attempts to  save a 10,000 acre swamp in Indiana known as The Limberlost. Mrs. Stratton-Porter was also one of the first women to form a movie production studio.

 

A Song in the Wilderness, by Larry Gard (artistic director of the Carpenter Science Theatre at the Science Museum of Virginia) and directed by Jacqueline Jones, originated in Marcia Quick Gard's passionate depiction of Gene Stratton Porter. A SONG IN THE WILDERNESS was first produced in 1993 as part of the annual Performances in the Humanities program of the Indiana Humanities Council, and starred Marcia Quick Gard as Gene Stratton-Porter. The show toured Indiana under the same banner during the spring of each year, through 1997. In 2002, A SONG IN THE WILDERNESS was produced featuring the same actress for a festival about women in science at the Science Museum of Virginia. We lost Marcia to cancer December 16, 2016. The 2017 production is offered by Larry Gard in loving memory of is wife Marcia Quick Gard, who passed away on December 16, 2016.
