HardSparks, a New York City-based theater company, presented the first in a series of site-specific performances of new plays to take place in Southampton. SparkHampton: The Wickapogue Plays featured work by Crystal Skillman (Cut, Wild), J.Stephen Brantley (Eightythree Down, Blood Grass), and Daniel Talbott (Slipping, Yosemite), who also directed the three pieces. SparkHampton: The Wickapogue Plays featured J. Stephen Brantley, Kathryn Erbe, Brian Miskell, Seth Numrich, and Jelena Stupljanin. Check out the production in the photos below!
For this first venture, Hard Sparks teamed with fashion stylist Irene Albright, who hosted the event at her Southampton home. The idea for SparkHampton: The Wickapogue Plays was birthed when frequent collaborators J.Stephen Brantley and Daniel Talbott discussed Brantley’s Southampton home, which he shares year-round with Associate Producer Robert M. Lohman. Brantley and Talbott loved the idea of bringing new work to Southampton, which is known for its local productions of revivals and readings.
They also enlisted Crystal Skillman, one of the hottest indie playwrights today with productions in Chicago, London and New York, as well as Indie Theatre Now, the online publishing outpost of New York Theatre Experience, Inc. It will publish the entire series of plays.
