New Orono theater company mounts its inaugural production

ORONO - “When a woman says she needs new shoes, what she really wants is a new job. When she says she needs a new house, she wants a new husband, and when she says she wants a new car, she wants a new life.”

Becky Foster speaks those words near the beginning of “Becky’s New Car,” the story of one woman’s decision to allow a little adventure into her life, but her methods of breaking out of her routine – of reaching for that new life – wind up presenting obstacles both expected and unanticipated.

A production of this play, written by Steven Dietz, is serving as the inaugural offering from True North Theatre, a new theatre company based in Orono. Directed by Angela Bonacasa – also True North’s artistic director – the show runs through July 30 at the Cyrus Memorial Pavilion Theatre on the University of Maine’s Orono campus. 

Becky (Amy Moran) is a woman who has entered into middle age with a perfectly acceptable life. She lives in a Pacific Northwest city with her family. She loves her husband, a hardworking roofer named Joe (David Lane), and she loves her psychology grad student son Chris (Jake Sherburne) even though he’s 26 and still living in the basement and won’t introduce his new girlfriend to the family.

Her job – office manager at a car dealership – isn’t the best; she works too hard and too long for not enough money. Still, it’s a job. Her co-worker Steve (Tellis Coolong) is nice enough, though his continuing grief at the tragic loss of his wife a year ago has made him a little odd.

But Becky’s orderly life is thrown into disarray when Walter Flood (Mark Bilyk) walks through the door one night. A billboard magnate, multi-millionaire Walter is in search of gifts for his employees. Cars, namely – nine of them. He’s also a widower who is immediately intrigued by Becky; when misinterpreted phrasing leads him to believe that Becky has also lost a spouse, she chooses not to correct him.

Before long, she’s being invited to lavish dinner parties at Walter’s mansion. She’s meeting his daughter Kenni (Eric Veazey) and his old friend Ginger (Bunny Barclay) – both of whom have some suspicions regarding Becky’s motives.

And she’s telling a LOT of lies.

She’s lying to her husband about the long hours she’s away, talking about a promotion and her responsibilities at a new dealership. She’s lying to Walter about her husband and the reasons why she won’t stay with him for the weekend. Steve, Chris, Kenni, Ginger – Becky is lying to them all.

Eventually, the weight of all this untruth causes Becky’s story to unravel. And when an unexpected set of circumstances leads to a unique potential solution, she has to decide, once and for all, what kind of a life she really wants – and what she’s willing to sacrifice to get it.

“Becky’s New Car” is a challenging piece, one that features a complex protagonist and a willingness to muck around with theatrical convention. There’s a lot of murky morality and plenty of fourth wall-busting audience interaction. Narrative threads are stretched in all directions, with only Becky herself capable of navigating them fully – with a little help from the other characters, the audience and even the tech crew.

Director Bonacasa meets that challenge by embracing the relatively tight quarters of the Pavilion Theatre, sending her cast up, down and around the space, pushing the show into every corner of the three-sided audience. It’s a show defined by sharp, clean leaps of movement, quick-fire dialogue and layered emotional engagement – Bonacasa mines all three from her cast.

That cast is led by Moran as Becky. It’s a tour de force role; the show simply doesn’t work without a capable performance from the lead. Becky has to engage with EVERYBODY – the cast, the crew, the audience – in an honest way. We have to like her even as she makes decisions that aren’t particularly likeable; no easy task. But Moran makes it happen; in her hands, Becky manages to come off as both laid-back and tightly wound. It’s an intriguing combination that works well; there’s an aw-shucks sweetness that clicks no matter who she’s interacting with.

The rest of the ensemble fills in nicely around Moran. Bilyk exudes an effortless charisma as Walter, giving the character a gentle smoothness that not only fits him, but also serves as a lovely counterpoint to the rough edges of Lane’s good-naturedly gruff Joe. Sherburne does good work portraying Chris’s big heart while peppering the room with jargon. Coolong’s Steve is a picture of static sadness, misery trapped in amber – and he makes it funny. Barclay charms as the genteel Ginger, while Veazey drops occasional pinches of salt in with her general sweetness as Kenni.

The production team – set designer Tricia Hobbs, lighting designer Scout Hough, costume designer Clare Bolduc, sound designer Phillip Wright – has created a wonderfully cohesive world in which this play can exist. Hobbs maximizes the Pavilion’s spatial potential in some compelling ways, while Hough’s lights do a marvelously specific job of stage delineation. Wright has produced an original score for the piece that adds a distinct and memorable layer to the proceedings.

Put it all together and you’ve got a pretty darned good piece of theater. This production of “Becky’s New Car” is impressive; the fact that it’s True North Theatre’s first time out of the gate doubly so. It’s a solid inaugural effort from the Orono group; I look forward to seeing what’s coming down the road.

(Tickets for True North Theatre’s production of “Becky’s New Car” are available in advance online at www.truenorththeatre.bpt.me or at the door the day of the show. For more information, visit www.truenorththeatre.org or find them on Facebook.)

    Knight's approach clearly, today is to help cling to garage, tend not to give him any probability, and Kevin durant is always private with defense. But garage or under heavy defensive hunt for opportunities, such as deal with stephen curry shoes low, he mobilized, use the other fear his border ability garage easily scored two points.


    The last 80 seconds in the first half, durant had missed shots from outside, this basket three players tend to be knights, including Thompson, lebron, because of this, the Treasury rushed into your basket from the long position, unexpectedly the offensive rebounds within the knight encirclement! Then he or she points ball durant, which finished scores!


    And the 2nd half, knight to defensive strategy seems to be shaken, they don't have too much double again, help, interestingly, JR in 1 in 1 against Arsenal, and directly put the garage was pushed to the ground.


    Sure enough, the particular knight defensive shaken curry shoes right after scoring started rising throughout his Arsenal, outside his 3-pointer by continuous, at that time he was given the chance to just like Kevin durant got chance inside first half. After three points within the database is still struck, he this section one bomb underneath the 14 points.


    Today is June 1, the time kevin durant shoes is the international children's day, it seems in the "primary school" is amongst the holiday today.


    Small garage finish I rested a lot of the holiday to battle, he or she is still the contribution on the brilliant stroke, but also pass a 3-pointer through Kevin durant. The very last 3 minutes, garage off prior to schedule, because the sport had no suspense.

    "I got utilized to my evaluation, " curry recalled,kd shoes "people said I seemed to be too short, don't enjoy college basketball, then for your same reason that Could not play in the NBA. People don't even think I can play shield, then said I am not a pure point guard, until October of a year ago, I also found how the general manager of funny if you ask me as the league 3rd good shooting guard. I've got not yet fully participate in their full potential, so i set a higher typical to himself, committed to continuously improve to be more outstanding. "


    "We've never met a person with curry shoes him so great shooting in all directions, " warriors coach mark Jackson said, "and throw, stop and go empty-handed, get hand, step back, knee, in the face associated with two double forced for you to......, any thought of shooting mode, you can see he or she is astonishingly. We have never ever seen anyone can accomplish this level, his Steve Nash (microblogging) played a superior level, the two-time MVP award, shooting is incredible, but it is usually a level. And the other like reggie miller, Chris mullin, such as dell and I played together - Ellis, dell - Arsenal, they are many fantastic striker, but many people didn't garage so comprehensive, this guy is absolutely no limit. "


    Timer along with dance, 6 minutes stephen curry shoes along with 30 seconds, Davis is doing everything we can to towards the garage, but still past due step. Garage again to try and do a beautiful jumper - it isn't strictly jumper, his toe will be out of the ground, under the condition from the body is still soaring, use forefinger and middle finger touch to perform the hand. Treasury system slightly back. This not only makes his moves even more complicated to block, as well as between the ball and floor a great additional 10 degrees Perspective. NBA players to moment takes 0. 6 seconds usually, the garage from preparing action to dial the actual ball moves, it merely takes 0. 4 just a few seconds. Fast to make up for that deficiency of the storage height, the ball well steer clear of the opponent blocking fly toward the basket in the operation, the look of garage is always along with them. His arm still moves when the posture, and of his teammates has begun for you to pose three gestures...
