Two characters, Del and Lee, search for a memorial to an act of violence that had an explosive cultural impact on their rapidly shifting city, a quest that finds them navigating challenging physical and interpersonal landscapes. They share the stage with Clare, a vulnerable docent-like soul whose personal tales skirt the edges of Del and Lee's search. Written by Christine Deavel and J.W. Marshall, "Vicinity/Memoryall" investigates the power and purpose of memorials for individuals and the culture at large.
Director Meleesa Wyatt is joined by cast members Cecelia Frye, Bill Johns, Jasmine Lomax, and Mariah Lee Squires. Scenic design is by Parmida Ziaei and lighting design by Zanna King. Rosemary Jones serves as stage manager.
