Two years ago, on Thursday March 14th 2013, Common Wealth Endeavors opened its first production. The play was Canadian, written in English by a young playwright, and spoke to the young in age and spirit, and those who could still remember being so. Ours was the US premier of the play and addressed a 21st Century phenomenon that applies as much to Americans as Canadians: the quarter century crisis, both a social and political phenomenon swirling in the zeitgeist. With all these characteristics, THE INNOCENTS, by Daniel Karasik, set the DNA for this new theatre company. I couldn't have hoped for a better launch vehicle and it gives me great pleasure to remember the exhilaration and chaos of our 14 day rehearsal period. Thanks to all who embarked on the first endeavor!
