Kodachrome 750X414
February 3 – March 18, 2018
In the Ellyn Bye Studio

Welcome to Colchester, a small town where everybody knows each other and the pace of life allows the pursuit of love to take up as much space as it needs. Our tour guide is Suzanne, the town photographer, who lets us peek into her neighbors’ lives to catch glimpses of romance in all its stages of development. A play about love, nostalgia, the seasons and how we learn to say goodbye.

A world premiere from our 2015 JAW festival (previously titled Colchester).
