Produced by multiple 'LA Ovation Award' winning theater company GTC (Grove Theater Company), this new play, part of the 'New Play Writing Initiative' is a wonderfully written, articulate, witty, touching & sensual look at three fascinating people battling fame, inspiration and Mount Everest in the Fall of 1923 in England: Vanessa Bell, the sister of Virginia Woolf, and one of the famed Bloomsbury artists; Duncan Grant, the most famous of the Bloomsbury painters, who was openly gay but lived with Vanessa for over forty years and fathered her daughter; and George Mallory (who Justin Ellis is cast as)- the first mountain climber to attempt to scale Mount Everest, who coined the phrase “Because it’s there” and died on his third attempt climbing the mountain (his body was finally discovered in 1999 and it’s still unclear whether he made the summit or not).
The Tragedy of Abraham Lincoln, by M. Stefan Strozier, which follows the events that lead up to the president's assasination, appeared at Where Eagles Dare Theatre, played in Manhattan, with La Muse Vénale Acting Troupe
