What is Glass Bandits all about? What do you do? What is your mission?
Glass Bandits is a gang of lovable misfits interested in making thrilling, accessible, unmannered theatrical events that bridge the gap between audience and performers.
How long has Glass Bandits been around? Who is in charge?
Glass Bandits formed in 2008, Eddie Prunoske is our Artistic Director. We have a large network of Bandits we collaborate with from time to time, including feeling. playwright Paul Cameron Hardy, who has worked with us before. Cast members Meredith Burns and Carl Holder, are on the board of the company.
Your next show feeling. plays through October at The New Ohio. What's the show about?
feeling. is a dark comedy centered on Emma, a professor who goes through a traumatic breakup with a long term boyfriend. In her grief, she hallucinates a friendship with serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer and grapples with the all-too difficult task of moving forward.
What can audiences expect from feeling.? Why should they check it out?
Audiences can expect to be surprised -- feeling. will push you out of your comfort zone in thrilling and satisfying ways. Though we all may not create a friendship with one of the most famous murderers, grief is an emotion that every person experiences in their lives. feeling. finds the humor in loss and captures the struggle of the experience itself.
What's next for Glass Bandits?
Who knows? We are constantly thinking of new production ideas in our minds, exchanging ideas about what excites us while also thinking of what the next logical step for the group is. Ultimately though, we're always searching for something we feel like we have to do.
