THE SELECT (THE SUN ALSO RISES)

Elevator Repair Service

The Sun Also Rises Play Clip

The first world war is over, but some battles still rage on. This is the backdrop for Ernest Hemingway's first major novel, The Sun Also Rises, which follows a group of weary, aimless and frequently inebriated American expatriates on a search for identity, diversion, and redemption.

“…dazzlingly free and inventive….a profoundly intelligent piece of theatre….” — The Scotsman

Told with spare and tightly written prose, Hemingway's novel comes to life on a stage littered with liquor bottles and cafe chairs as the story winds its way through France and Spain and lands in the streets of Pamplona where bullfighting and the fiesta are in full swing.

The members of acclaimed New York ensemble Elevator Repair Service (GATZ, Sound and the Fury) spent two weeks in residence at the Paramount developing this work prior to its premiere as a feature of the 2010 Edinburgh International Festival. They return to Boston to share the completed production, which features the company’s trademark sound design, highly energized choreography and re-imagined bullfighting.
