Fri. July 31 @ 7:30pm ANCESTRAL VOICES: A Family Story by A.R. Gurney
presented by Deertrees New Repertory Company
ONE NIGHT ONLY - A Deertrees Theatre Fundraiser
Set in Buffalo, New York in the 1940s, ANCESTRAL VOICES is a bittersweet story, perceived through the eyes of young Eddie, whose family is turned inside out when his grandmother unexpectedly divorces his grandfather in order to marry his grandfathers best friend. Simultaneously, the outside world is undergoing temporal changes, and we follow the family through the ensuing decades of war and social upheaval. Written to be performed informally, with actors reading from scripts.
If the family is the key theme of American drama, A.R. Gurney's ANCESTRAL VOICES: A FAMILY STORY is a beautiful chamber work in that great tradition. The short play is staged as a concert work, with five performers sitting on chairs in front of music stands, where they've laid their scripts. The five are playing members grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, son of a rich WASP family in Buffalo NY between 1935 and 1942, with a brief coda from the 1960s. The son, Eddie, who goes from age eight to twelve, is our narrator, guide and point of view. This lovely play unites the microcosm of family to the macrocosm of America at war. On Eddie's first date he brings his girl a paper war-sage. It's also about something in between a city. It's an elegy for Buffalo,
a once-glorious place whose fortunes are declining. The texture
of life in Buffalo is heartbreakingly evoked in ways reminiscent of The Magnificent Ambersons This is a magical play, not a mere exercise in uncritical nostalgia, but a nuanced reminiscence full
of time and change and loss and suffering as well as joy. ~ New York Post
