New Conservatory is well known for doing premieres and spotlighting new works, which gives actors the opportunity to work directly with the authors as they shape and refine their scripts. When the political landscape shifted during the rehearsal process for Brad Erickson’s drama about immigration and gay marriage, a good part of the second act had to be rewritten and Brad come up with an elegant solution quickly and effectively. This was another great cast that really bonded together backstage with a lot of laughter despite the dramatic tension on stage.
