Among the productions included at the 2022 Hollywood Fringe Festival is Jeannette Srinivasan’s (Theater BFA 23) Yellow/Blue Play, an original play about a surviving twin’s experience with grief, memory, and the colors of her childhood.
A recipient of the 2022 Hollywood Fringe Festival Scholarship, Srinivasan has crafted a play that is an ode to mental health awareness as it follows the aftermath of the traumatic loss of a twin sister. The surviving twin struggles through the journey of forgetting her sister’s name and being forced to watch memories from home videos in order to remember again. (Although the play is set in present day, many of the events took place in the early 2000s.)
The cast includes Shireen Heidari (Theater BFA 24), Justine Gorry (Theater BFA 24), and Olivia Ross (Theater BFA 24). Yellow/Blue Play’s creative team also includes Srinivasan as director, writer, sound designer, costume designer, and set designer, and Kenzie Caulfield (Theater BFA 24) as lighting designer.
The show runs 90 minutes and will have performances Thursday, June 9 at 8:15 pm, and Monday, June 20 through Wednesday, June 22 at 8:15 pm, all located at the Hudson Theater (Hudson Guild).
