by Michael Redhill
Directed by Phil Ireland
Stage Managed by Michele LaPointe
“Love just changes some people for the worse.”
An evil is lived. The story is told. Something even greater is heard. Michael, a writer searching for witnesses to a family tragedy, meets Althea, whose vivid past compels Michael to question what and whom he should trust. Althea remembers the alleged war criminal she was supposed to protect, his loving daughter and the prosecutor who seeks his conviction. Does failing memory absolve responsibility? Is love an enemy of justice? Past and present are drawn to each other just as evil and goodness are threaded through all we do.

to March 24 ~ Station Gallery

Station GalleryWish Them Well
Join Station Gallery in opening our newest exhibition featuring works by Catherine Lane, T.J Brown and Passmore Mashaya. Wish Them Well is a trilogy that plays out in three galleries. In the Coppa space, the idea of a wish being something that is longed for or desired. Deeper in the heritage space, Lane will conjure them - the two William Stones involved in a historic cold case murder tale that clings to the station building. The plot thickens further in the far gallery space, centering around a well. Wish Them Well invites viewers to create unique narratives from drawn and constructed fragments offered by Lane. Deep contrasts and dramatic tension dominates T.J Brown's work in Occultatum. His psychologically charged pictorial spaces take cues from film noir and cinematic thriller narratives. He takes great interest in what remains obscured, treading into areas which are better left untouched. In exploring these spaces, we are left with wondering who is trespassing upon whom. As a child, Zimbabwe artist Passmore Mashaya was surrounded by beautiful scenery. His adaption to this great natural beauty of the town of Nyanga significantly influenced his artistic passion for telling stories through stone. Wish Them Well, Occultatum, and Dreaming Through Stone are on at Station Gallery from
