Nicky Park Memorial Park
July 5 - July 7, 2013
"Nicky Park Memorial Park" is the story of a girl who knows all about what she's going to know before she knows it. Coming of age in a world of Judy Blume novels and widespread transgression, she tries to navigate selfhood while battling a deep obsession with a boy who no longer exists. As we travel through her mind, her world, and her headphones, we learn what a ghost can be--and what to do with one if we find it. Amid a soundtrack filled with confusion and yearning, Nicky Park Memorial Park sends an honest, unsparing love letter to the 1990's--professing devotion, but also demanding an explanation.
This world-premiere production is brought to Boston by the young writing/creative team that took New York by storm last summer with their electro-dance interpretation of Gertrude Stein's opus, "Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights" at the 3LD Center. This production is directed by Abby Colella, and features Sami Horneff, Ned Riseley, and Ellie Shepley.
