Three Seconds: Barn Arts Collective


The Renovationists are thrilled to be spending a week in Maine at the Barn Arts Collective workshopping Corbin Went's play Three Seconds. 

Joining Emma & Corbin: Harrison Densmore, Julia Larsen, Olivia Barresi, Patrick Harvey, Zoe Goslin, and Finn Kilgore.

"Is loneliness something in the blood? Or is it something in the air? As life at White Rock Lighthouse shifts tidally back and forth across a century, Emory meets the only person who could inspire him to change his fate. Two distinct timelines weave into one family story of loneliness, thwarted hope, and the ocean."

(Residency October 8th-15th, Barn Arts Performance Saturday October 14th 7 PM)
