And... we're back

As many of you know 2nd Wind's blog sleeps in between productions.  It's a way to protect and nurture our creative juices.  Those are, in point of fact, a little less ripe than in year's previous, and I find myself unsure of what I want to blog about for this production.  Luckily, we've got a tradition of posting images from our first read-thru as the initial blog of a new show, so I've gotten a "Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free" card for this round.  But I will say this-- The Disappearance of Mary Rosemary is the story of a little girl who disappears for several days on a small island, only to return with no memory of the event.  Years later, her fiancĂ© can't resist the urge to bring her back to the isle... in doing so summing forces beyond his understanding. At its heart The Disappearance is an old-fashioned ghost story.  It was originally written by JM Barrie of PETER PAN fame, but after a smashing success, running for 340 straight performances, the play disappeared from the stage. This adaptation resurrects his story in the Louisiana bayou against the backdrop of soldiers returning from Iraq.

And now for those images....
