ADDITIONAL PRODUCTION INFORMATION:
I am Sophie.
Written and Performed by Corinne Shor
Directed by Susan Angelo
I AM SOPHIE. is a new one-person play written and performed by Corinne Shor. Originally introduced as a workshop production for The Hollywood Fringe Festival, it now will be presented as an intriguing full-length production directed by Susan Angelo.
"I Am Sophie." is an exploration of identity in which YOU become the confidante to Sophie Carter, formerly known as Kate Carter. Sophie is a changed woman returning to the United States after living in France. She comes home to take care of her sick father and when she arrives, her loved ones meet Sophie for the first time. What follows is an existential adventure. With humor and an aching heart, Sophie has us all wondering – “Am I who I think I am?”
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to re-invent yourself - to start over as someone else? Sophie gives you a chance to sit court-side during one such adventure. To join her down the rabbit hole on an adventure of self-discovery.
Writer / Actress Corinne Shor began with character improvisations in her weekly artist workshop. And little by little, petit à petit, Sophie and her whole world grew and took shape. In many ways, Sophie wrote this play. Corinne just took a back seat and went for the ride. That may sound a bit artsy fartsy but it holds truth. With the support and constant feedback from her fellow artists in the workshop, Sophie's story became a one person play. Then came the workshop production at The Hollywood Fringe Festival. At the Fringe, I AM SOPHIE. was performed to sold out houses and it was clear something was resonating with audiences. Now, after continued development, adding lights, sound and a creative team, we want to share this fully realized production with an even wider, more diverse audience.
THE GOAL & WHY THEATRE?
The goal of this production is to offer a very unique and intimate way to explore the topic of identity. To have it become a conversation. And because it is a theatrical experience, an instant, tangible connection forms between Sophie and her audiences. A rather urgent connection - knowing that theatre disappears as it happens. Never to be repeated in exactly the same way. But felt. And perhaps costing you something more than a film might as the character of Sophie is standing right there, before you, raw and vulnerable and asking for your help navigating her life.
"I am Sophie." was completely crowdfunded on the platform Seed & Spark. If you would like to
