The Search Party
The Firehall Arts Centre and The Search Party are pleased to produce and present the world premiere of The Amaryllis.
Written by Michele Riml and directed by The Search Party’s award-winning artistic director, Mindy Parfitt, the audience is transported into the fascinating, quirky world of Lucy and Jeremy Keener. Lucy is a terrifically talented voice over artist and Jeremy is her troubled agent, who would sooner jump off a cliff before ever following a dream of his own. Sister and brother for better or for worse, these two are inextricably bound. The amaryllis plant – a mysterious gift from a mysterious giver – takes on a strange power over their lives. The Amaryllis is a mystery about what it really takes to grow, and a comedy about what it really takes to change.
“Named after one of my favourite flowers, the play reminds us how challenging and fragile change can be and how difficult it is to undertake in isolation, says artistic producer Donna Spencer. “Not unlike the needs of the flower and the needs we all have to grow and become who we are, the character of Jeremy requires support and encouragement to step out of the safety of the world he and his sister Lucy have created together. I am so pleased to bring this work to the stage at a time when we all need encouragement to grow and make the changes we can during this global pandemic, and to partner with The Search Party on its realization.”
Tuesday-Sunday @ 7:30 pm, Saturday & Sunday @ 3:00 pm and Wednesday @ 1:00 pm. Check the Firehall Arts Centre website for exact dates and times.
