The creative team is adapting Sam Shepard's play to the small space of the Joyce Doolittle Theatre in the Pumphouse Theatre in Calgary, and it's going to be a bit of a challenge. The play tells of the tainted romance between Eddie and May, and looks at how the desires of one generation can wreak destruction in the next."It's intense," Konchak says when asked about what she likes about the play, "it asks a lot of everybody emotionally. It's not a very long play, but you go through a lot in a short period of time while you're on stage. You don't really have a lot of time to breathe," she adds. She explains that it's a bit of a pressure cooker and that's going to be stepped up when in Calgary. "The Joyce is a really intimate space," she says,"and we're confined to [that] small space."
