Coming Attractions: Preview the Design of Tiny Island

wings-over-waterA fading, family-run movie house is the setting for Michael Hollinger’s Tiny Island, the first production in the Washington Stage Guild’s 2015-16 season.

The bittersweet comedy takes place in the early 1980s in the projection room of the Brynwyd Classic Cinema, a space where past and present, celluloid fantasies and uneasy realities mix.

Take a look as designer Kirk Kristlibas offers a preview of his set, which features vintage projection equipment and posters from Hollywood classics. He’s also created the poster for the most romantic aviation saga you’ve never seen, the fictional Wings Over Water, which plays a key role in the play’s action.

Tiny Island features Stage Guild company members Laura Giannarelli and Lynn Steinmetz as Muriel and Hazel, sisters who are forced to face some truths-and some selves-they’ve avoided all their lives.

The show, part of the Stage Guild’s Season of Past and Future, plays October 1 through 25 at the Undercroft Theatre of Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church, 900 Massachusetts Avenue, NW.
