Come Shining

The Barn at Single Carrot Theatre

2600 N Howard St, Baltimore, MD 21218

May 5th at 6pm, May 6th at 3pm, and May 7th at 7pm


As spring takes its first steps, the voices of our elders guide us through stories of the aging mind and spirit on its journey. Songs and gestures emerge, objects from the past shift places, then shift again. Multiple generations, from near and far, come together to imagine an evening of something new.

Come Shining was created by Temple Crocker with residents from Springwell Senior Living Community using TimeSlips, a collective story telling technique developed for people with dementia related memory loss.

Come Shining is performed by Temple Crocker, Ben King and Dan Hanrahan, and incorporates the voices of many of the collaborating residents from Springwell including Leslie Bathurst, Bonnie Behner, Phyllis Cohen, Ursula Oliver, Alice Marks, Rosetta Mangeri, Josephone Sharoky, and Jackie Taylor.

Other artists contributing their talents to the project are David Crandall, Keri Eastridge, Nathan Ebelein, Christine Ferrera, Julianne Franz, Ellen Kruger, Sarah Lloyd, Chas Marsh, Juanita Rockwell, Tom Shade and Pete Wiedman

Tickets are $10.00
