Earth and Sky is best described as an onstage Film Noir. When poet/librarian Sara McKeon learns that her boyfriend of ten weeks has been viciously murdered, she has no idea things can get even worse. Evidence suggests that David was possibly involved in a variety of illicit activities. Unable to reconcile these accusations with her memories, and fuming that the police don’t seem engaged, Sara begins her own investigation deep into an urban underworld. The story moves backward and forward in time in overlapping scenes, from Sara and David's first meeting to the climatic resolution, as she finds herself facing her lover's killer.
Sara McKean, poet and librarian. Pleasant and mild, perhaps even naive, though circumstances will reveal an inner strength and fearlessness she may not even have
realized she had.
David Ames, restaurant owner/manager, attractive, charming, hard-working. Sara's boyfriend of just 10 weeks, though theirs is a serious relationship. Sara thought he was a nice guy, but was he really?
Detective Al Kersnowski, a gentle soul in a rough profession. He's been around and seen too much. Aware of Weber's faults, protective of Sara. An earnest crime-fighter. Fond of food. He may be brighter than he appears.
Detective H.E. Weber, classic hard-bitten detective. Cheats on his wife, hits on Sara, has a bad disposition and a mean temper.
Joyce Lazlo, Sara's co-worker and confidante. She has a secret.
Billy Hart, bartender, owner of the bar where David was last seen alive. Billy's cook is a suspect. World-weary, businesslike, single, a good listener. Has a soft
spot for Sara.
Carl Eisenstadt, with the demeanor and appearance of a CEO. More than likely an organized crime boss. A bad man in a good suit.
Marie Defaria, David's ex-girlfriend. Hard, unsophisticated, wary. Does she know
more than she’s telling?
Julius Gatz, a goon, tough, a mobster.
"Earth and Sky" will be performed November 4 – 20. For more information, contact the Playhouse at 360-679-2237 or firstname.lastname@example.org
