The eighteen scenes of this play could be regarded as separate playlets covering the years from 1933 to just before Hitler's entry into Vienna. Each is preceded and linked by a short verse, forming a sort of kaleidoscope of life under the Nazi dictatorship. The whole forms a horrifying picture of darkest tyranny, but is lightened by the occasional gleams of defiance.

Amy Berlin and Zachary Owen have formed Wishing Wind Creations, a producing partnership committed to telling visceral stories developed through playful collaboration. WWC is serious about fun, both in the creation process and on stage.
WWC's first show, Miss Witherspoon by Christopher Durang, will be produced in collaboration with Lynn Theatre at John Tyler Community College. Miss Witherspoon will be cast and staffed with an exciting combination of JTCC students and professional artists from the Richmond community.
Veronica, already scarred by too many failed relationships, finds the world a frightening place. Skylab, an American space station that came crashing down to earth, in particular, haunts and enrages her. So she has committed suicide, and is now in what she expected to be heaven but is instead something called the Bardo (the netherworld in Tibetan Buddhism), and the forces there keep trying to make her reincarnate. So far she's thwarted these return visits to earth with a sort of "spiritual otherworldly emergency brake system" she seems to have, but when she is finally reincarnated, will she learn her lesson? This is a play about facing one's fears. even if it means returning to a world that finds new ways to terrify everyday.
Director Zachary Owen is seeking to cast 3 women and 1 man. The role of Veronica will be played by Amy Berlin. Please prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary comedic monologue. Auditions are open to students and non-students alike. All performers will be paid. Miss Witherspoon runs from February 1-16, 2019.

Dark of the Moon - Tickets on Sale Now!
Dark of the Moon
By Howard Richardson and William Berney
This perennial favorite is based on the haunting folk ballad of "Barbara Allen." Employing a large cast and imaginative settings in the Smoky Mountains, it recounts the story of John, a strange "witch boy" who upon first beholding the beautiful Barbara Allen immediately falls in love. He is given human form to woo and marry her on the condition that she remain true to him. The marriage is consummated and Barbara gives birth to a witch child whom the townspeople destroy in a superstitious frenzy. During a religious revival Barbara is led to betray John thus breaking their spell of love. As she dies, he returns forever to the world of the mountain witches.
Performances on November 8th, 9th, 10th, 15th, 16th, and 17th at 7:00pm at The Lynn Theatre at John Tyler Community College's Midlothian Campus.
General admission: $10
Students get in free with valid JTCC student ID.
