Time Is The Mercy Of Eternity, A Meditation in Four Acts by Deb Margolin is my first ever offering as a director and producer for the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. A couple grieves for their child, a woman is murdered, a man drives a bus, a pair of strangers contemplates life in a department store display. And all these pieces live and breathe in the same space, and confront time, time as it moves by us, time out of mind, time that has been lost forever.  Working with an amazing team of actors and designers I will be presenting this amazing meditation on loss and love and memory and, of course, time, in the 2011 Fringe.

The work was written by a former professor of mine, playwright and performance artist Deb Margolin. Margolin's work is a celebration of the failure of language, for, as she loves to say, if language didn't fail, there would be no need for theater. But it does, and performance remains one of the most vital and important ways we can communicate and gather. Margolin's work includes Imagining Madoff, Oh Yes I Will and Three Seconds In The Key, among many many others. It is my strong and indignant belief that Deb Margolin's work is not performed nearly as much as it should be, and I'm going to try to change that, one meditation at a time. 

This project features an amazing host of actors and designers. Actors include Victoria Frings, Julian Cloud, Keith Conallen and Brea Bee, and designers include Leigh Mumford and Paul Winnick. I am so amazed and excited to be working with these extremely talented artists, and I know what we create together will be nothing short of stunning. (Hear that, guys?) 

I'm extremely excited to explore this rich and luminous text with an amazing group of artists. With your help and support, we will be performing Time Is The Mercy Of Eternity from September 4th to September 7th in the Arts Parlor. Look for us in the Fringe guide, check us out on Facebook, but please, take a minute to give to us right now. Every dollar helps, do it now. Do it while you have the time.
