Continuing to adapt to the twin necessities of social distancing in a pandemic and experiencing art in person, the Creative City Project has unveiled their newest production, Bright Young Things, set for a run in October.
Bright Young Things is an immersive, outdoor theatrical experience from writer-director Donald Rupe and creative director Cole NeSmith. Set in the 1920s, the audience will follow a group of actors ("young bohemians") on a jaunt through the actual streets of downtown Orlando as the story unfolds around them.
A small cast of eight actors will present intersecting storylines set in an alternate reality where Prohibition was never repealed (the timing of this is both fortuitous and beyond irony) and Roaring ’20s aesthetics mix with up-to-date technology. There will be effects and lighting employed throughout the journey.
