Arts & Culture

The Players begins a new season with a new series in a new performance space! Inclusions by Joseph Allen Smith runs Sept. 8-10 and 15-17, 2023 starting off the new Sidebar Series in The Players Black Box space, inside The Players Studio (1400 Blvd. of the Arts, Suite 200, Sarasota, FL 34236.) This production stars Blake Walton and deals with the universally suffered theme of grief. In an intimate Black Box setting located at the Players Studio in the Rosemary District, the Sidebar Series includes shows that fall off the beaten path and are designed to intrigue and engage audience members. Carefully curated by Artistic Director, Steven H. Butler, the stories are chosen to reflect on the fragility of the human condition. Synopsis: Ralph and Louise are in their 60s. They have been married for 37 years. They have no children. They are retired and lead a quiet life. They never talked about what life would be like after, you know, it happens … But it happened. And now, three years later, Ralph is still struggling with widowhood and the consequences of past decisions. In this one-man show, Ralph tells the story of a very special ring.

Sept. 8-10 and 15-17, 2023, Fri..-Sat. at 7:30pm, Sun. at 2pm, 1400 Blvd. of the Arts, Suite 200, Sarasota.
