When actors Elizabeth Frances and Brian Tichnell arrived at the Fountain yesterday to shoot the highly charged publicity photos for our upcoming world premiere of Dream Catcher, they had only met once before and hardly knew each other. But you wouldn’t know it once the camera started clicking. The two actors, playing lovers Roy and Opal, bravely leapt into the passionate world of the new play with fearless abandon.
Photo shoots can be uncomfortable and awkward. Not this time. With director Cameron Watson and photographer Ed Krieger guiding the way, the afternoon went smoothly and the room heated up fast.
Solar power confronts spirit power in this new drama by Stephen Sachs about climate change, cultural change and the moral consequences of personal choice.
Roy is the youngest member on a team of high-level engineers brought in to launch the most important project of his career — the construction of a solar energy plant in the middle of the Mojave Desert — when the sudden discovery of long-buried Native American artifacts threatens to bring the billion-dollar operation to a halt. The disaster gets deeply personal when the whistle-blower turns out to be Opal, the fiery and unpredictable young Mojave Indian woman with whom Roy has been having an affair.
