On the Corner of Clark and Vine
By Autumn Shiley
Directed by Autumn Shiley, Heather Renken
“There’s water running in the bathroom... I have forgotten why I turned it on.”
Sometimes the memories of our lives are told in the faces of strangers we meet. Two of these strangers, both needing connection, find each other... and in finding each other, they find themselves. Is it an excuse to live or a reason to die?
On the Corner of Clark and Vine is Michigan native Autumn Shiley’s debut on the Broom Street stage as a playwright, director, and actress. This new play tells stories we all know: love, loss, and our search for meaning after both. Sometimes a poem, sometimes a song or a dance, and always honest, On the Corner of Clark and Vine is never afraid to share these delicate joys – and relish lives, lived and unlived.
Shiley, Don Dexter, Mary Fairweather Dexter, Collin Erickson, Phrannie Lyons, and BST newcomer Dan Myers share the stage in this inspired work.
