The show will feature the program's M.F.A. class of 2010. It will be directed by Alex Harvey, and the design team will include scenic designer Melpomene Katakalos, costume designer Callie Floor, lighting designer Ben Wilhelm and sound designer and composer Kevin O'Donnell. Robert Rutt is the musical director. According to A.C.T. press notes, Berger, inspired by the collages of Joseph Cornell, "weaves a whimsical, poetic narrative of love-struck soldiers, mermaids, unicorns, a contemplative goat, and a hapless inventor attempting to devise a self-cleaning toilet, all on a fantastical quest for the meaning of existence. Set in a small corner of Ireland circa 1918 and suffused with music from World War I, O Lovely Glowworm is a joyously inventive celebration of humanity."
