Theatre Program Presents "Polaroid Stories" Livestream Feb. 25-28, 2021

Inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Polaroid Stories blends mythology and the real life stories of street kids scraping by on society's margins.  Written by Naomi Izuka, the play is drawn largely from interviews the playwright conducted with runaways, prostitutes, and drug dealers.  Director Bria Walker says she picked Polaroid Stories because of its powerful story-telling, its blending of classic myth, and contemporary reality.   “The idea of ‘myth’ is very interesting to me,” she remarks.  “I love to explore what is the truth, what are lies, how those two things converge, and how the supernatural intervenes within it all.” According to Walker, the virtual platform for Polaroid Stories aligns with the play’s theme of creation:  “We have to be creative in order to tell this story.  We must adapt our storytelling.  And during these tough times, we need stories more than ever.”  

Walker, a multi-disciplinary artist and theatre professor from Pittsburgh, is assisted on Polaroid Stories by OCA at SOU Theatre students Mirriam Meredith  and Atlas Mendez (scenic design), Krista Carlson (costumes), Rachel Miller (sound), Nola Waage (Director’s Assistant), Caleb Hefner (OCA Videographer/Editor/Photographer) and Stage Manager Johanna Bautista.
