Upintheair Theatre  Presents a Reading of Lesli Brownlee’s

The Long Distance Between

Playwright: Lesli Brownlee

Playwright: Lesli Brownlee

A fly on the wall view of the sometimes violent, sometimes comic, power negotiations that take place after hours between an actor and her director.

When Sam, a former actress, comes face to face with the man responsible for the death of her career she struggles to find the power to confront him. Meanwhile Brian, an aging director desperate for redemption, finds himself sitting beside a woman he mistakes for a prostitute and who has an uncanny resemblance to the girl who started it all. . As fate, subconscious desire, or plain old chance chase these two back through the maze of their shared past, we come to understand that the truth is often the longest distance between two points of view. The Long Distance Between; Or, Jungle Jungle Whatever is a darkly comic look at our desire for suffering in art and the effect it has on the people responsible for servicing that need. Created with the generous dramaturgical support of Jessie award winning director/writer/facilitators Joanna Garfinkle (PTC’s Block A) and Liesl Lafferty (The Wet Ink Collective).
