“Want” is the first fully mounted indoor production by The Shattered Glass Project, which was founded in 2019. Led by two Seattle theatre veterans, director Maureen Hawkins and playwright Barbara Lindsay, Want has evolved with TSGP from its initial online performance as “Familiar Kill” in January 2021. The cast includes Kathy Hsieh as Ruby; Ronnie Hill as Earl; and Jennifer Faulkner as Janelle. Other creative team members include Bella Rivera (scenic design); Carolina Johnson (lighting design); Alison Kozar (sound design and stage management); Eliane Rodriguez (costume design); Britta Baer-Simon (property design and ASM); Jess K. Smith (intimacy direction); Morgan Grody (fight choreography); Lara Kratz (graphic design); and Kirk Hostetter (photography).
TSGP “is a theater company with a mission to amplify the voices of theater artists who have been marginalized on the basis of their gender or sex by offering unique opportunities to create and to grow professionally,” according to a press release.
