Pith! by Stewart Lemoine
First seen at the Edmonton Fringe in 1997, Pith is the story of an itinerant sailor who leads a grieving society widow and her stoic housekeeper on an exhilarating and treacherous journey into the heart of the South American jungle… without ever taking them out of the living room. With only four dining room chairs and a phonograph, Jack Vail propels Virginia Tilford and Nancy Kimble from Providence, Rhode Island to New Orleans, Panama, and Ecuador, where hilarious encounters with a succession of explorers, shysters, gigolos, and all manner of tropical wildlife will have life-altering consequences for the ladies. It’s an innovative, hilarious, and ultimately moving tribute to the power of imagination that’s been one of Teatro’s most revived and well-traveled productions. In addition to Varscona runs in 1999, 2004, and 2012, we’ve performed Pith in cities across Canada and on three separate occasions in New York City.
