Pulp Vérité

by Crystal Skillman

The Clifford Odets Play Commission 2015

Directed by Shaun Peknic

December 10-12, 2015. The Marilyn Monroe Theatre.

Synopsis: A graduate filmmaker returns to the States from Syria to reunite with her fellow classmates gathered in Martha’s Vineyard with the goal of finishing their documentary film. But what once began as a story about creating art to survive in a war torn country becomes personal as the classmates record themselves attempting the impossible: bringing the last member of their filmmaking crew home. Full of theatrical imagination, Pulp Vérité plunges head first into the joy and terror of sharing stories about those monsters under our beds that never seem to go away… and the price that comes with the art of telling the truth.

Featuring: Terrease Aiken, Maddie Atchue, John DiMino, Madison Dix, Chapman Hyatt, Cullen Kuch, Ale Mesa, Anamari Mesa, Eleanor Hall Watson, and Rachel Whiteman

Creative Team:

Scenic Design: Ryan Howell

Lighting Design: Christopher Bowser

Dear Students and Prospective Students,

As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we wanted to take time to reassure our community that The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute is monitoring circumstances on a regular basis. We are committed to the well-being and education of our students, faculty and staff. Following in step as other universities and schools, we have transitioned to holding classes remotely in ways that are meaningful.

The Spring 2020 term will begin on April 20th.

These are unique times worthy of serious thought and implementing measures of caution. We trust that our Community will, as always, join together, to find new ways to collaborate, innovate, and continue doing the work we care so deeply about.

Please be sure to follow us on social media for events and updates during this time where we're all Safer at Home.
