Part of OZ Arts Nashville’s TNT Local Spotlight Series
For the first theater production within its TNT local spotlight series, OZ Arts presents a new production of Simon Stephens’ acclaimed monologue Sea Wall, directed by Belmont University professor Jaclynn Jutting. Jutting curates the evening’s presentations and “sets the stage” with an installation of photography by Tina Gionis.
In Sea Wall, things for Alex (Nat McIntyre), the play’s protagonist, are good. He loves his wife, his daughter, his city, his job (as a photographer). But sometimes the force of life can crash against you. Sometimes everything you thought you could always depend on can be taken away. Sea Wall is an unforgettable story about family, fear and the things that can’t be undone.
The Irish Times has described Sea Wall as “perfectly-formed” and “masterfully wrought.” The Independent (UK) has called it “devastating.”
Jaclynn Jutting is an Assistant Professor for the Department of Theatre & Dance and head of Belmont’s B.F.A. Directing program. She is a professional director and the former Associate Artistic Director of Vitalist Theatre, with whom she directed Kobo Abe’s The Ghost Is Here, David Hare’s The Bay at Nice, Vitalist’s participation in the national Suzan-Lori Parks 365 Days/Plays Festival and Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children (as Associate Director), which won an After Dark Award for Best Direction. Jutting has worked as a freelance director in Chicago for over a decade.
Nat McIntyre’s Nashville credits include acting in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (The Nashville Shakespeare Festival); Othello (The Nashville Shakespeare Festival); As You LIke It (The Nashville Shakespeare Festival); Frost/Nixon (Studio Tenn); The Diary of Anne Frank & Becky Shaw (Actor’s Bridge); and directing End Days (FDR). His Broadway credits include War Horse (Lincoln Center). He has also appeared in numerous TV shows and films.
Tina Gionis is a conceptual portrait photographer currently based in Nashville, TN. A selection of her works from two series, entitled A Frame of Reference and Legacy, will be projected onto oversized photo frames installed within OZ Arts’ Grand Salon.
