Directed by Jill Stinson-Littlejohn and assisted by Judy Williams, cast includes: Lyryn Cate, Audrey Colton Smith, Caleb Devenny, Randy Groden, Brad Knowles, Justin Mason, Patty Rosen, Brad Ruder and Skye Stafford.

In this compelling dramatic triptych, the individual lives of three terminally ill patients and their loved ones are deftly explored with energy, warmth and humor. The play spans one 24-hour period in three separate cottages on the grounds of a residential medical center, where patients and their families may stay if they agree to document their thoughts and feelings through interviews with an unseen doctor.

It is these interviews which skillfully tie the three plots together. The characters are diverse and colorful. Celebrated by critics for its insight, perceptiveness, and humor in dealing with controversial subject matter, The Shadow Box earned Cristofer both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award in 1977.
