Visual elements will be introduced to “Embers,” which was intended as a radio play, and will be enacted by John Brennan, accompanied by the voices of Wendy Wilmer, Joe Shaffner, and Anastasiya Orlova. Concluding the program will be “Rough for Theatre II,” featuring Kim Curtis, Ned Read, and Peter J. Orvetti. Sound design by J. Michael Whalen. Costume design by Adalia Vera Tonneyck. Scenic design by Stephen Strosnider. Sound and light operation by Eric Wells. Directed by Ross Heath.
