The Post Theatre Company, the not-for-profit resident theatre company of the Department of Theatre, Film and Dance on the LIU Post campus, is proud to present three performances of UNLESS and IT ALL March 4 & 5 at 8pm, and March 6 at 3pm.   The productions will be staged in the Rifle Range Theatre as part of the Post Theatre Company’s 2015-16 season.

Unless is an original work created by Cameron Clay and Laura Kaye Chamberlain. The piece uses rap, spoken word, and poetry to connect its audience members on a personal level to today's environmental crises.
• It All. Unlocking what happens when the act of interpretation no longer satisfies the creative impulse of the actor, and how it can stir a necessary obsession. 

Abby Slocum is a senior Musical Theatre major at LIU Post. Her Post Theatre Company credits include Metamorphoses (Eurydice), Hell & Back (Andy), Into the Woods (The Witch), The Walls (Virginia), and Bum Phillips: The All-American Opera (Ensemble). She was also seen in Conditions of Love, a devised physical theatre piece combining Sondheim and Shakespeare, which traveled to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Most recently she performed at the Reagle Music Theater of Greater Boston as Violet in Bernstein's Wonderful Town. She is so excited to be developing It All alongside Paige Espinosa and her mentor, Maria Porter.

Laura Kaye Chamberlain (Co-creator of Unless) is a senior Musical Theatre major here at Post. She is extremely grateful for the opportunity to create a piece of environmental theatre, and hopes that this show will inspire its audience members to take action toward protecting and nourishing our beautiful planet.

Cameron Clay (Co-creator of Unless) is a senior musical theatre major at LIU Post. This season he will be performing in The Gifts of the Magi, stage managing Venus, and co-creating a performance thesis with his friend Laura Kaye Chamberlain. The performance, composed of rap and spoken word poetry, will serve to strengthen the connection between individuals and the Earth, her state of disrepair, and the changes that can be made to fabricate a positive future for our home.
