News   A Crumbing Cottage in the Berkshires Sets Scene for World Premiere Ice Glen, Dec. 7 at Florida Stage
 
Joan Ackermann's Ice Glen, a new play set in a crumbling artist's retreat in the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts, gets its world premiere Dec. 7-Jan. 16. 2005, at Florida Stage in Manalapan, in sunny Palm Beach County.

Set circa 1918, "Ice Glen follows a group of wonderfully eccentric characters who are immersed in a life of nature, poetry and the desire to fulfill their dreams," according to production notes. "With Ice Glen, Ms. Ackermann deftly manages to evoke a lost era as America was moving from the cloistered world of innocence to the developing modern world in which it would play a major role in industry, commerce and the arts."

Michael Bigelow Dixon directs a cast that includes Dan Leonard and Elizabeth Dimon, both veterans of Florida Stage and of the South Florida Theatrical scene, and Carlo Alban, Stacia Rice, Alicia Roper and Brian Goranson.

Executive producers for Ice Glen are Wileen and Melissa Coyne.

Designers are Matt Briganti Kelly (sound), Suzette Pare (costume), Matt Reinert (lighting) and Ray Recht (set).
