Synopsis: It’s New Year’s Eve and Roz finds herself all alone at the “Ice Palace,” a humble curling club in her small Wisconsin hometown. As she prepares the ice sheet for the next day’s big bonspiel, in walks Victor Nielson, world-famous star of the stage and screen, with a stunning announcement and a staggering proposition.
In their youth, Roz and Vic shared everything, including a passion for Shakespeare, curling, and each other. But fate intervened, fracturing their relationship in a web of secrets and betrayals, and the two haven’t seen or spoken to each other in decades.
As the clock ticks on toward midnight and a new year, Vic and Roz reexamine the past and the icy rift that stands between them, wondering if a thaw is possible — at least, when they aren’t throwing stones at each other in this prickly, funny, touching new play.
THROWING STONES will have a staged reading at the Paramount Theater in Peekskill, NY on Sunday, November 19 at 2 pm. The reading features Kurt Rhoads and Nance Williamson, two beloved Hudson Valley artists who are also nationally renowned Shakespearean actors – a husband-and-wife team who have performed together on American stages 72 times during 40 years of marriage. They also curl pretty darn well!
THROWING STONES was commissioned by Paramount Hudson Valley Arts and the Paramount Theater with support from the New York State Council on the Arts.
