"Falling means you just let go and see what happens," says Emily in Falling from Trees, a David Moberg play coming in March to the Bisgrove Community Theatre at Cayuga Community College. In this drama staged by the college's Harlequin Productions troupe, six troubled teenagers climb a tree to test their courage and seek the love their families have denied them. Emily, a "forest flako," is joined by mentally challenged Joseph, and then by the high school football hero, two cheerleaders and the town delinquent in a bid to create a fantasy world in the treetops.
Cast members include Kenny Baker, Zac Darling, Jacqueline Kocur, Alaric Robin, Suzanne B. Smith and Esther Taylor-Weiss as the lead ensemble. In supporting roles are James Adler, Shelwyn Becker, Mike Davis, Krista Haggett, Greg T. Miraglia, Cailin O'Connell, Brie O'Donnell and DeeDe Pace.
