Shooting Star by Steven Dietz
August 3 - August 14, 2011
The Salem Theatre Company will produce Steven Dietz’s romantic comedy Shooting Star, as part of their Music & More Series for eight performances only from August 3 to Sunday August 14. The production is directed by STC Artistic Director, John Fogle. The two person play features Sarah Carlin of Beverly and Dave Rich of Marblehead. Salem’s Emma Cavaliere will serve at production Stage Manager.
Snowed in overnight at a middle-America airport, college lovers Elena Carson and Reed McAllister have an unexpected and life-altering reunion. Elena has stayed true to her hippie-ish, counter-culture path, while Reed has gone predictably corporate and conservative. As the night gives way to laughter, banter, remembrance and alcohol, Elena and Reed revisit a past that holds more surprises than they imagined—and a present that neither of them could have predicted.
