Just off the fringes of each year’s mainstage season schedule at Two River Theater Company, there exists a completely original, fully homegrown theatrical work that audiences will be able to see nowhere else a project that falls under the umbrella title PlayBack.
When the invisible curtain goes up at Two River Theater’s Marion Huber “black box” space this weekend, the 10 area high school students who created, developed and rehearsed the full-length stage work known as One Child will be doing their thing at a performing arts center that’s regularly hosted Tony-lauded talents and other familiar figures of music, movies and TV. And, as is customary, audiences who’ve followed the PlayBack presentations will be able to claim “we knew them when” bragging rights.
