Entrance to The Folger Theatre
Hello from Washington D.C. and
The Folger Theatre!
I'm in rehearsals for my next show, The Gaming Table by Susanna Centlivre, and I am simply blown away by this city, The Folger Theatre and Folger Shakespeare Library itself, and the enire Gaming Table team. From the "all girl rock band" of designers, to our fun, fearless, and brilliant director, Eleanor Holdridge, to the outstanding cast that is bringing this wild and obscure Restoration Comedy to life... I could not be more enchanted.
It doesn't hurt that I get to play Valeria, a young female scientist and philosopher, a liberated woman and mind, written well "before her time." Not only do I actually get to disect things on-stage, but I get to reference Descartes in one line and tell a dirty joke the next. I am in love.
Also! The Folger has asked myself and the other Emily T. in the cast to write the production blog for the show. The Dramaturg in me is thrilled. Check it out if you get a second!
And if you're in the D.C. area from Jan. 24th - March 4th check out The Gaming Table.
I bet you'll enjoy it. http://www.folger.edu/woSummary.cfm?woid=677

A Christmas Carol at the Milwaukee Rep in the Historic Pabst Theatre is OPEN!
Being back at the Rep and working on this show simply feels like coming home.
I love this story and, in particular, this truly moving production. The show is getting lovely reviews and I could not be more proud or delighted to be part of this magical classic.
Come check out the play and get in the Christmas Spirit!
Back in Utah! This time in Salt Lake City, at the Pioneer Theatre Company, playing
Miranda in Charles Morey's inspired production of The Tempest. I'm
having an amazing time, and feel very lucky to share the magical isle each night
with so many wonderful and gifted pros. Not too mention, the Salt Lake fall
scenery ain't too bad out here
The Tempest, Pioneer Theatre Company - October
21st - November 5th
"Emily Trask as Miranda is spellbinding. She captures the
innocence of a girl who has been sheltered for years from the real world. She is
especially wonderful in the scene where she and Ferdinand finally make their
love known to each other." - Tony Porter, UTBA Reviewer
"Emily Trask’s feisty, totally spontaneous Miranda
and Andy Rindlisbach’s earnest, eager-to-please Ferdinand are a
delightful departure from the pasteboard portrayals these characters
often receive." – Salt Lake Tribune
"Emily Trask and Andy Rindlisbach are all fresh,
youthful innocence as Miranda and Ferdinand" – About.com
