Project Description

Eternal Equinox was produced at GTC Burbank as a production of the GTC New Play Initiative. (Leonard Ogden received an LA Ovation Award nomination for Best Set Design)

“Complex relationships, sexual politics and dynamic performances come together for a great night of theater in Eternal Equinox…The script is clever and rife with sexual tension and innuendo…and featured wonderful work by the players. Gillian Doyle, Justin Ellis, Christopher McFarland and Matthew Scott Montgomery should be commended for taking on this spicy subject matter. Each role required comic timing and believable chemistry. Everyone delivered in spades.” – Burbank Leader

“Under Kevin Cochran’s direction, the piece scores with its capacity for nuance and its focus on the gap between the ideal of free love and plain old human jealousy. The production also gains color and ambience from designer Leonard Ogden’s enlivening set and costumes and David Darwin’s lighting… Doyle gives an intelligent well-calibrated performance” – LA Weekly

“a solid cast, costumes and a stage that take you back in time, and a script that is both fun and a little naughty … ingredients for a great night at the theater” – Glendale News Press
