Vino Buono Productions starts off their inaugural season with Blind Portrait, an abstract Theatre Show written by Chase Hiebert.
In it, three people are trapped in a room. Each is filled with regret and a deep desire to connect, but held back by their (sometimes literal) inability to see each other. As the room becomes more crowded, desires become more urgent. Slowly, reality unravels and raw emotion takes hold. Written with both startling poetry and black humour, Chase Hiebert’s Blind Portrait is an abstract exploration of memory, loss, and selfhood.
Directed by Karin Saari.
Starring: Pascal Lamothe-Kipnes, Laura Ramoso, and Ann-Bernice Thomas
Premiering March 8 - 10, 8pm at the Intrepid Club
