Rebecca Singer Performs “Natural/Not Natural” at Bridge Street Theatre [Berkshire on Stage]
In seven pieces ranging from magical realism to comic satire, Natural/Not Natural takes us from the wild winds of the Costa Rican cloud forest to the elephants of Botswana, from the desks of medical billing offices to the intricacies of an iPhone 7, exploring Mother Earth and microchips as Rebecca Singer morphs from observer to participant. Aided by “The Woman in Black,” who is everything from prop mistress to midwife, and featuring a performance by acclaimed belly-dancer Donna Barrett, this show invites us to grieve over our losses and celebrate our silliness.
Written and performed by Rebecca Singer, Natural/Not Natural will be performed at the Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill at 7:30pm Saturday (April 14) and 2pm Sunday (April 15).
