HIGH BRIDGE - On May 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, One. Four. (Zero)., a new play by Michael Joel, will make its debut at Solitude House in High Bridge, New Jersey. The play features Liz Lehman, Mia Zanette, Christine Bennett, and Michael Joel and is assisted directed by Mike McQuade.
No Dominion Theatre Co. was co-founded by Michael Joel, Kaitlin Overton, and Aryana Sedarati in March of this year and One. Four. (Zero). is the company‚Äôs very first production. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôve all been working creatively together throughout, and even after, college,‚ÄĚ says Kaitlin Overton, ‚Äúso we figured we would start this company to serve as somewhat of a home base for us, aesthetically and financially. It just made sense. And it makes the whole ‚Äėtheatre-making thing‚Äô that much more real for us, too. Because that is what we all want to do, so we thought: ‚Äėwhy not do it for real?‚Äô‚ÄĚ
Overton is a High Bridge native and a member of the Cultural and Heritage Committee in High Bridge as well. ‚ÄúThis is the first time, that I know of, that a theatrical performance will take place in Solitude House, which is not only exciting for us a new theatre company who loves doing theatre in spaces other than theaters, but for High Bridge as a community,‚ÄĚ she says. Overton has been working on another site-specific theatre piece with No Dominion Theatre Co. that will be based on interviews conducted with the High Bridge community. It will be performed at Solitude House in November of this year.
