THE MISSING CHAPTER

by Katie Marks & Aoise Stratford

Aug 31–Sep 9

At Stewart Park, Ithaca NY

The Missing Chapter introduces audiences to Wharton Studio heroine Beatrice Fairfax, advice columnist for the lovelorn… and amateur sleuth! As Beatrice solves crime in the heady days of the women’s suffrage movement, audiences will stroll* Stewart Park to investigate “missing chapters” in the history of our own community, and discover a fascinating piece of Ithaca’s geography and heritage that’s been hiding in plain sight.
Audience members who participated in Storm Country, The Cherry’s original headphone walking play, will recall the thrill of traversing Ithaca on foot while being immersed in the world of an audio adventure. In The Missing Chapter, text, dialogue, music, and sound effects interweave to create an immersive theatrical experience unlike anything else in Ithaca!
Spots are limited. Reservations highly recommended! Reserve now.
The approximately one-mile walk takes about an hour, punctuated with many stops to rest along the way. This is a wheelchair-accessible experience. Please email info@thecherry.org if you would like more information.
