“A Kind of Alaska” on stage at NMU


The Forest Roberts Theatre is preparing to kick off the fall season with the first production, “A Kind of Alaska.”

It tells the story of a middle–aged woman who has been in a comatose state. She awakens to a still 16–year–old mind, a changed body and a changed world.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the play is that there are only three cast members in the show.

“It’s different,” cast member Liz Trueblood said. “I, personally, have never worked with a cast that is so small. I sort of like it because there is more time to develop a deeper relationship with the characters when there are only two characters as opposed to twenty.”

The show is just on stage for only two nights: Friday and Saturday.

Tickets are available at the Forest Roberts Theatre and cost $5 for general admission.
