Outstanding Solo Performance, David Greenspan

Transport Group’s radical revival reunites David Greenspan, dramaturg Kristina Corcoran Williams, designer Dane Laffrey,  and director Jack Cummings III in an almost preposterous feat, as these three artists conceive Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning nine act, six-hour play Strange Interlude into a solo performance.

Nina Leeds’ life crumbles when her true love is killed in World War I. Flitting from one man to the next until she settles for a life she never wanted, stalked by the fantasy of the happiness she never shared with her late fiance. This saga from 1928 follows the lives of eight characters over the course of a half century. Transport Group’s production will incorporate the fragmented identities of each of these characters, and their colliding inner and outer lives over an entire lifetime, into a single performer, and turn one of O’Neill’s most ambitious works into an astounding theatrical event.

This piece represents the 1920s in Transport Group’s on-going production cycle, The 20th Century Project.
