From The Producing Artistic Director

The past several years have been a blur of changes, adaptations and challenges for all arts organizations but as we look toward our 2023-24 season, it feels like all our energies can once again be turned toward doing what we do best…producing great live theater.  This season includes some fantastic shows that will challenge us as artists and, we believe, engage our audiences in new and exciting ways.

We rarely have “themed seasons” at Falcon and that wasn’t an initial goal for this coming year, but as I look at the titles we’ve chosen, a theme keeps cropping up…one that is incredibly timely and important:  Identity.  All our shows explore the concept of identity…from what it actually means to be human to the ways gender roles have changed to an individual’s inner search for their true self.

We all go through crises of identity and we all have our own views on identity challenged at times in our lives.  Look at the news on any given day and you will find story after story about the triumph or devastating disappointment associated with an individual or identity group.  Given the landscape we find ourselves in, these plays (some brand new and some well established) have never been more relevant or more important.

As a theatre company, we believe that the arts have an essential purpose in society and that is to challenge people to think…to question…to open themselves into the worlds of others.  We hope you enjoy every minute you spend at Falcon Theatre and that those minutes lead to hours of later conversation and exploration.  Welcome to our 2023-24 season: The season of Identity.

Cast Biographies

Ben Dudley (The Man): Ben Dudley is grateful for the opportunity to work with the Falcon Theatre for the first time. His previous acting credits include the Know Theatre shows Bankers (2023), Puffs (2019), and All Childish Things (2015), as well as several Fringe Festival productions. His writing credits include The Opinions of Men: A Stupid History of the Protestant Reformation (2020), Home (2017), and Occupational Pleasures (2015). He earned his master’s in creative writing from the University of Cincinnati and works as an editor of books and articles.

Elizabeth Durham (Julianna): This is Elizabeth’s first show with Falcon Theatre and also in Northern Kentucky. Favorite roles include Sonya in Uncle Vanya, Gertrude in Hamlet, Emma in Betrayal, Emily Brontë in Brontë, Lavinia in Titus Andronicus, Hecuba in The Trojan Women, Mae in the feature film Mae Waits, and Alyssa “with a Y” in University of Louisville’s Online Freshman Orientation Modules. Performance highlights include performing at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. She’d like to thank the brilliantly beautiful and beautifully brilliant Piper Davis for her trust. She’d also like to thank Carole, Laura, and especially Sheri for their generous help in researching this role. Finally, Elizabeth would like to dedicate this work to her past and her future: to her mama and her daughter

Anna Hazard (The Woman): Anna is delighted to return to the Falcon stage for this beautiful show. Anna was most recently seen as Susan in Wait Until Dark (Cincinnati Landmark Productions), Rebecca in Book of Will (Mariemont Players), Annelle in Steel Magnolias (Mariemont Players), Viola in Twelfth Night (Loveland Stage Company), and as an audience plant and understudy for Every Brilliant Thing (Falcon). Catch her next in Bloody Mary at Fringe! Anna is so glad to be in a partnership where things can be good even when they aren’t, and to have parents who support her no matter how many times her characters say fuck. Love to D’Waughn, Mom and Dad.

David Levy (Ian): David’s last production (“Daisy”) was also for Falcon Theatre but was filmed as a movie and released during lockdown. He is grateful for this chance to literally “walk the boards” again. When he is not telling stories on stage, David spends an inordinate amount of his time helping others to share their stories on the stage as part of Cincinnati’s longest-running storytelling event, True Theatre (“true stories told by real people”), which he co-founded in 2010. Husband to Jennifer, father to Tyson, software developer for Kroger, what time he has left is spent largely doing CrossFit or thinking about CrossFit. Do you want to try CrossFit? David recommends it! DO CROSSFIT!
