Edwards theatre event explores technology, memory, with banjo!

Listen to this story
"Now at the Uncertain Hour" is an intriguing new theatrical event for live performance, online streaming, and radio. The show takes the audience on a journey through the landscape of a soldier's memory as a collector attempts to make sense of what will be left behind.

In the midst of the relentless currents of time, the play asks what we can take hold of that will go on, that will not be lost. The collector combs through the soldier's memories as captured on an old reel-to-reel tape as they blend with the sounds of old time banjo and modular synthesizer to create a unique listening experience.
Todd Moe stopped by a rehearsal last week at St. Lawrence University to talk with cast members Megan MacDonald, Wes Kline, Camilla Ammirati and director Charlie Pepiton.
