SecondStage: The Other Place

August 9 - 12, 2017

by Sharr White

Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center*


Just as Juliana Smithton's research leads to a potential breakthrough, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod.


* This production is co-sponsored by and presented at The Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. For directions and more information, see below.

Juliana - A sharply charismatic scientist in her ealy fifties. Juliana's obviously fierce intelligence is both her greatest asset and her largest burden, having helped her carve a niche in a deeply competitive field infiltrated by brilliant minds, and yet bringing her a deep impatience and a drive not always understood by those around her.


Ian - Juliana's husband, early fifties, an oncologist.

The Woman - In her late twenties to early thirties, The Woman portrays: Dr. Cindy Teller, a neurobiologist; Laurel, Juliana and Ian's daughter; and a Woman.
