Local nonprofit Opal Theatre Company will premiere a digital rendition of “Bleeding Hearts” by Steve Yockey on Vimeo.com Sept. 10-13. The digital rendition will replace the scheduled stage performance.
The show will be available for digital rental 24 hours a day for the duration of the run, and patrons will have 48 hours to watch their rental from the time they make their purchase. This will be Opal Theatre Company's first production to reach audiences outside the Treasure Valley, the company stated in a press release.
“Bleeding Hearts” is a dark comedy intended for a mature audience. It is a breakneck, pitch black farce about the disappearing middle class and how people forget to put themselves in each other’s shoes, according to the release. The show is directed by Daniel Vogt, starring Catherine Richardson, Matthew Melton, McKenna Kline, Tristan Berg, and Dylan Eller.
To accommodate public health measures, each actor filmed their own scenes at home while Vogt directed them in video conferences.
