The Old State House Museum takes a big theatrical step with this weekend's production of The Bridegroom of Blowing Rock by Catherine Trieschmann, Eric E. Harrison writes in Thursday's Arkansas Weekend section.
The two-act play deals with how women in a small North Carolina town keep their homes together in the absence of able-bodied men during the last days of the Civil War. It’s the first collaboration between the museum and Torn Kite Theatre Company, a Little Rock-based group that focuses on socially conscious and historically significant issues.
Director Josh Sigal, coordinator of theater programs for the museum, is the connection.
“We ended up with a phenomenal cast of seasoned actors who are bringing a whole lot to the table,” Sigal says.
