The Diviners


Diviners is the retelling of a community myth, a legend handed down, recounted until it is imbued with a sacred quality. The idea then is to create a ritual feeling to the telling that rises above the blunt facts of existence. This was accomplished with a simple setting and the ephemeral nature of projected scenery and the definition of places through lighting. The playing style of the opening sequence and the elegy at the end was formal in look. The scenes in between were played realistically but without properties to create a feeling of real and not, simultaneously.

The director…has given careful consideration to the effect of the play from the moment the house lights go down to the closing elegy…although this is a play worthy of a standing ovation, the company doesn’t even appear for a curtain call. The moment is complete.
