Richard Nelson’s “The Apple Family: A Pandemic Trilogy” was written and performed on Zoom over the Summer of 2020. Actors’ Mission performs two works of the trilogy under the title “And So We Come Forth.” We rejoin Nelson’s Apple family of Rheinbeck, NY, as they meet virtually over Zoom to share meals, swap stories, process the pandemic and stay connected through the lockdown of April 2020, and then again in July during the social justice protests. Apple siblings Richard, Barbara, Marian, Jane and her partner Tim lay bare their struggles to negotiate the “new normal” in the face of the COVID virus. Originally written to be performed as a Zoom Meeting on Youtube, Actors’ Missions’ live stage adaptation of this work also explores the phenomenon of Zoom itself and the idea of “what you see” versus “how we really are.”
⚠️Updated Performances: Jan. 20th, 21st, 22nd, 24th, 25th at 7pm and January 23rd at 2:00 PM at the Broadway Theatre in Downtown Rock Springs. Admission is free and a complimentary meal will be served before each performance!
