A Day in the Life - Joe O'Brien, KING LEAR

And next up we have Joe O'Brien, an Ensemble member in King Lear. This is Joe's second production with People's Light--he filled in for Jeffrey Coon as Prince Aiden of Sargasso for a week during last season's Cinderella. Welcome back, Joe! Now let's see those photos...

Props from King Lear--some dangerous-looking knives!

For those of you who have never had Puffins Peanut Butter Cereal, it is delicious.

A nice view of PLTC's 2 feet of snow, from Joe's room at the Farmhouse. That's the garden of Places! Bistro below.

Cast members (from left to right) Peter DeLaurier (Kent), Graham Smith (Lear) and Mark Lazar (Fool) during rehearsal. At the table to the right we have Stage Management Interns Mike Chittenden and Mary Pizzullo, and Stage Manager (and wife of Graham) Audrey Brown.

A King Lear book that has been seen being passed around by many of the cast members.

We don't have a production photo of Joe yet, so here's his headshot so that you can put a face to the name!

A Day in the Life - Kevin Bergen, KING LEAR

This time around we asked Kevin Bergen, who is playing Edmund in King Lear, to take some photos to show what he sees in a normal day. Let's take a look!
