South Street is a new play by Carson Kreitzer poetically exploring the multiple identities and decades of adventures of Gloria Wasserman, affectionately named “Shopping Cart Annie” by the inhabitants of the Fulton Fish Market of the Lower East Side of NYC. I directed seniors of the 2013 BFA Actor Training Program at the Guthrie theatre in a devised process using a physical approach to acting and an “action design” aesthetic for actor-manipulated scenography.
I designed “fish carts” with scenic designer Peter Baker, modeled after the costume carts in the rehearsal rooms at the Guthrie that we used during the process to transform into all of our worlds within the play.
