A Thousand Words

By Gwendolyn Rice

Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray

In collaboration with Milwaukee Chamber Theatre

Script developed through Wisconsin Wrights New Play Development Project

The art world is ecstatic when a box of stunning black and white photos from the ’30s is discovered amongst some long-lost possessions of Ernest Hemingway. A curator from the Metropolitan Museum of Art immediately lays claim to them, but so does a woman who might be the granddaughter of the photographer, Walker Evans. As the stories unfold, both in the 1930s and the present day, one question remains: What’s a picture worth?

The cast will feature UW Madison MFA alum Josh McCabe; Milwaukee actors Stacy Hicks, Georgina McKee, and Libby Amato; and APT actress/Forward Theater advisory company member Sarah Day.
